West Gate Of Khiva

west gate of Khiva

The gate of the old city stood majestically

Shot in Khiva, Uzbekistan. A big gate with two towers was rising at the entrance of the old city. And a hooded man was walking the square in front of it. Once the city prospered as a caravan city on the Silk Road. Yet it was a tranquil at the time of visiting. Caravan didn't come to this city anymore. On the other side of the gate, a big minaret which was halted to the construction for a long time was seen.

The old town is surrounded by walls and listed on UNESCO World Heritage Site.
