Ark Overview
The Ark of Bukhara is the oldest structure of the Bukhara town which was occupied from the 5th century to 1920. The emirs of Bukhara used to reside here and it is a royal town within a town. 80% of the Ark is now in ruins but some of the royal quarters are still standing and have been converted into museums.
