Ancient citadel located near the western gate of Ichon-Qala (Ata-Darvaza), once was the core of the old city. On its territory the ruins of the castle of Akshih-baba are well reserved, which used to unify a group of yards with domestic buildings. Among them are: kurnysh -khana (Reception of Khan), a summer mosque, mint and a building of harem that was built-later.
Attention is drawn to light carved wooden pillars of summer mosque, made in the unique manner of Khiva carvers and the walls, covered with a rare beauty of majolica cladding.
