With the help of some especially prohibitive requirements still on the books, they were largely able to quarantine the unwelcome newcomers.Stylistic elements originating in Bukhara were thus relegated to a series of cramped and out-of-sight blocks, neatly tucked away behind two rows of prewar high-rises across the way from Queens Boulevard, a treacherous twelve-lane thoroughfare.
A little to the north from Toki-Sarrofon there located the large Telpak Furushon Trading Dome.
Long ago, in the XVI century under the Shaybanides dynasty, Bukhara became the capital giving rise to unprecedented growth of the city, and since it was located on the Great Silk Road, the markets and trading stores even more congested cross-roads of public roads.
Several centuries passed since that and four trading domes have only survived up to date.
Most major monuments that have survived are from the 16th century onwards, the Sheibanid period, when economic and cultural development was stimulated.
Bukhara was also the largest center for Muslim theology in the Near East. The same can be said of the little Ismail Samani mausoleum, dating from the 9th-10th century, and the four turrets of the Chor Minar.
