Khorezm Bagh

Khorezm Bagh

The rectangular fortress of Khorezm Bagh lies in the southwest corner of the archaeological site, west of the Ashgabat road. It is a relatively recent monument, though built on the site of a citadel which probably dates to the time of the Golden Horde. It was built on the order of a khan of Khiva named Mohammed Emin, who decided in 1846 that he would make Konye-Urgench his place of residence. This plan was terminated abruptly by Mohammed Emin’s death in battle in 1855, and that was it for Khorezm Bagh.
