It seems that since the very creation of the world, this huge fortress has been standing in the center of Bukhara, which has always been a protection and support for the Bukhara rulers. The history of Ark is still shrouded in mystery. The age of Ark has not been established precisely, but, in any case, one and a half thousand years ago, this majestic fortress was already the seat of the ruler. It was built by the efforts of thousands of slaves who created an artificial hill by hand, without powerful equipment, under the scorching sun many centuries ago. For centuries, the Ark remained the main residence of the Emir of Bukhara, the place from where the supreme command of the country was exercised. Here, in the Ark, in addition to the rulers, great scientists, poets and philosophers lived and worked: Rudaki, Firdowsi, Avicenna, Farabi, Omar Khayyam.
