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 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. We may drop you off in your hotel or train station at the end of the trip for the same price.
