Northern gate Talipach is one of two preserved gates of the Uzbek city Bukhara.
Unfortunately, the fortress walls are almost destroyed, except a small area. But it has breaks. The gates lost among buildings and establishments. Chashma-Ayub mausoleum is located near Talipach gate. Believers visit it to pay tribute to suffering of the righteous man. In the Bible, he is known as Job of the Old Testamen. The traditional oriental bazaar is also located nearby.
Talipach gate was installed in the middle of the 16th century. During rule of Abdulla-han II, fortress walls were under construction. They protected Bukhara citizens from attacks of nomadic tribes and neighboring khanates (kingdoms).
Archeology and history scholars revealed names of 11 city gates. Five of them were in preserved area of modern city. Talipach gate bordered with Shirhiran and Imam gates.
Even after centuries, their majestic appearance silently reminds us of once mighty Bukhara Khanate.
