This is a strange structure, in the middle of town near the Old Fort. The water tank has been removed from the top, leaving a really nice monument. Not something to deliberately go to see, but you will pass it in the city

I am not sure why this is on TripAdvisor, but you do get a great view of this tower from the Ark. It does stand out in Bukhara. I am not sure if you can climb it though.

This tower is very near to the Zindan fortress and prison. It was originally used as a water tower and in the post Soviet era turned turned into a restaurant and bar which flopped as a business.

This example of a steel water tower was constructed after the Soviet invasion destroyed the cistern infrastructure in Bukhara. This tower is definitely a good example of Soviet utilitarian minimalism. It is just across the 40 Pillars mosque, on your way to the Ark Fortress,...More

You see it when going around the arc area, food to know it was a water tower as it currently looks like a oddly located viewing point

This is an unmistakable sight. I'm so used to seeing water towers with solid towers that it took some time to figure out what it was. Well worth a picture
