The Zindan is the most fascinating piece of history in Bukhara. It's an old prison, next to the fortress citadel, that was used by the old rulers to hold their worst criminals and political prisoners. The bug pit, an underground cell full of horrors was even used to hold two British prisoners during the Great Game years, when they tried to exert British influence over Bukhara. It didn't go well for them, and they ended up in the Zindan...
