Painting Chor Minor Uzbekistan

Bukhara, Uzbekistan view map

A man painting a famous historic building in Bukhara Uzbekistan. Chor Minor (also spelled Char Minar) means "four minarets" in Tajik. The towers are technically not minarets; the building functioned as the gatehouse to a long-gone madrassa. The towers are topped with attractive aqua-colored tiles that are common in Bukhara's historic sites.
