It takes about 20 minutes to drive from Khiva to the first destination Chodra Hauli - Khan’s Summer Residence. It is located on the east side of Khiva. The building has its own shape and was built in 1871 by Muhammad Rakhim Khan as a summer residence. The four-story 30-meter building is reminiscent of a minaret with its own design. Apart from design, the building has a relatively small base, is 16mx8m. There is a storage room and two warehouses in the basement. The first and second floors were served in the room. The next place to visit is Yangiariq Poetry Center. There you can see all the processes and the traditional ways of making ceramics. You can also buy things made from Ceramic to decorate your house. The next place to visit is Ulli Hovli - Turkmen Fortress. The Ulli Hovli is a historic castle built around 1640-1694 as a settlement. The fortress was founded in the middle of the 1600s as a result of Turkmen migration. Apart from the main castle, fortresses called Oshak ovov and Upper ova are still present, but they have not survived to this day. Ulli Hovli is one of the oldest exhibits of the culture and lifestyle of Turkmen tribes living in Khiva Khanate. The most interesting part of the day is to swim in the Salty Lake - Kalajik Lake. The lake is located in the middle of the desert next to the fortress with the same name called Kalajik Kala. The castle was built in the 4th century BC as a defensive building. There is no accurate information on who built the fortress. According to the myths, one of the mysterious figures left in history by Solomon was built in honor of his father, David. Content of the Kalajik Lake water is close to the Dead Sea Water and has a useful property. Sand dunes around the lake are also famous for their useful properties. Hundreds of people will enjoy therapeutic swimming, sand bath, camel safari and horse riding daily in the summer period. It is about 90 minutes to drive from Kalajik Kala to Khiva.
