Notes on the Geography of Uzbekistan: Bukhara: Citadel: Photo 1

world pictures Uzbekistan: Bukhara: Citadel

The city once had a wall; it's mostly gone now but this gate survives.  It's called the Sheikh Jalal Darvoza, or Sheikh Jalal Gate.  A visitor a century ago saw it locked.  "All these gates... are shut at night and the key delivered at the palace of the Emir, where they are again fetched the next morning; only at the gate where the road from new Bokhara leads into the town are the keys always with the guard at the gate out of regard for the Russian political agency, which has free passage day and night." (Quoted from O. Olufsen, The Emir of Bokhara and His Country, 1911.)
