„Uzbekistan (Antonia Tozer)“

from the gallery of John Warburton-Lee Photography
Description:

The Kalta Minaret. Mohammed Amin Khan meant this to be the tallest building in the Muslim world. Construction began in 1851 but after the khan died in 1855, his heir aborted the project. Nonetheless it has some of the city's most extravagant tiling (heavily restored) in blue, white, red and Khiv's hallmark green.
