The historical complex of Khiva “Ichan-Kala” has many archaeological monuments from the XIX-XX centuries. When you come here, you can feel the connection of different times and peoples. Like in the fairy tale of Aladdin, there are many historical mausoleums and madrasahs in the streets of this old city, leading from one to another. One of these archaeological monuments of Khiva is the madrasah Yakubbay Khoja, which is located to the west of the old cult mausoleum Pahlavan Mahmud. The madrasah was built in 1873 by the wealthy merchant Yakubbay Khoja from Khiva.
Seen from above, the madrasa looks like a rectangle extending along the longitudinal axis from west to east. The vestibule group ends with a domed room, traditional for Muslim architecture, which leads to the inner courtyard through an arched gateway. In the northeast corner of the madrasa is a small domed mosque made of brickwork. The wooden doors are decorated with rich tiles by Khiva masters.
