Description

The Maghak-i 'Attari mosque is one of the better-preserved and fully excavated structures in Bukhara. Russian archaeologist V.A Shishkin's unearthing of its buried southern portal in 1939 was followed by several restoration projects in the 1970s. The southern portal, which is the oldest component of the present structure, can be traced to the Qarakhanid dynasty's extensive rebuilding in the twelfth century. Comprehensive restoration carried out by Ashtrakhanid ruler Abdul Aziz Khan in 1546-7 constitutes most of the present mosque. https://archnet.org/library/sites/one-site.jsp?site_id=8396
