Photographer's Note

The Lonely Planet guide refers to this structure as "disused water tower" and implies it was constructed by the Soviets. I am not entirely convinced it is correct though.

Apparently it was once possible to climb it and enjoy the views of Bukhara from the top. However, when I went there last October the entrance was surrounded with barbed wire.

In this photo the top of the tower is silhouetted against the sky at sunset. It was the only cloudy sunset I witnessed while travelling in Uzbekistan. In WS you can see what the whole tower looks like by daylight.
