Notes on the Geography of Uzbekistan: Bukhara: Street Scenes: Photo 2

world pictures Uzbekistan: Bukhara: Street Scenes

It was suburban Bukhara, the rabad rather than the medina, that enjoyed running water.  These things are relative, though. There was no separate drainage or sewage system, so the canals quickly became dangerously polluted.

The buildings in the background are part of the Russification that occurred in this part of the city in the 19th century.  The minaret is obviously modeled on the Kalan Minaret.
