Khiva is one of the cultural highlights of the country and is located in the west of the country, near the city of Urgench. The main attraction here is Itchan Kala, the inner town of the old Khiva oasis, which was the last resting-place of caravans before crossing the desert to Iran. Although only several of the old monuments remain, it is a well-preserved example of the Muslim architecture of Central Asia and still, there are a few structures like the Djuma Mosque, the mausoleums and the madrasas and the two magnificent palaces built at the beginning of the 19th century by Alla-Kulli-Khan. For this reason the Itchan Kala has been placed on the Unesco World Heritage List.
