Iranian woman in front of Chor Minor in Bukhara Uzbekistan. Chor Minor (also spelled Char Minar) means "four minarets" in Tajik. The towers are technically not minarets; the building functioned as the gatehouse to a long-gone madrassa. The towers are topped with attractive aqua-colored tiles that are common in Bukhara's historic sites. Photo taken on July 10, 2012.
