Boharzi promoted conversion to Islam Khan of the Mongol Golden Horde - Bereke. Boharzi was a follower of Chagatai Khan Buyan Cooley.
We Boharzi grave was erected a mausoleum-kanaka, until the end of the 18th century served as a place for rites of dervishes.
On the other hand the grave of his master was buried by his disciple - Kuli Khan Brawler. Later, over his tomb was built as a mausoleum.
The ensemble of Poi-Kalon (12.16 Ages)
Poi Kalon ensemble consists of 3 architecture: Kalon Minaret, Kalon Mosque and madrasa Mir-i-Arab, which together coherent architectural ensemble, which is the greatest and most magnificent building of Bukhara.
Kalyan Minaret (1127)
Kalyan Minaret (large, great) was built during the reign of Khan Karakhanid - Arslanhana. It is the tallest building in the old Bukhara (46.5 meters).
The minaret is a massive round pillar, built of brick and topped with a lantern-looping rotunda with 16 arched openings. The entire height of the minaret 12 decorative belts, each with its own special pattern.
Increasingly, we are faced with the problems of floods and droughts. But instead of working in the multi-mode, say the Toktogul water reservoir - improvements to these extremes, the commercial interests of the power industry has led to increased flooding in wet years 2003 ... 2005, and particularly to a deepening drought in dry 2008. Such an attitude towards the interests of downstream states are not only contrary to international water law, but is at odds with the universal principles of respect for people and nature. The construction of new large hydropower plants creates a new tool for the pressure and the emergence of new human and technological disasters.
For its part, Uzbekistan has always been in favor of cooperation and understanding, and directs its efforts towards a reasonable and equitable use of water resources of the Aral Sea basin.
I wish the participants of this conference every success in achieving its goals - to agree on joint solutions for the creation of a regional water security.
