The Kipchak Mosque in Ashgabat, Turkmenistan

Khiva: Khiva: "Khiva remains one of the greatest cities on the Silk Road: a labyrinth of madrassas and mosques, minarets and trading domes that look just as they would have done at the end of the 19th century. On a cold winter’s evening, after the wedding parties have departed and the few tourists are enjoying their supper, you can be entirely alone with the ghosts of the past, wandering the narrow streets and soaking up the atmosphere."
