I'm going to take you on another revisit to Uzbekistan, this time to the city of Bukhara.
The Ark Citadel is a massive old fort in Bukhara dating from the 5th century although many of the buildings are much newer. It is built above massive retaining walls which you can see in a WS photo.
The main photo was taken within the main audience area where the ruler received visitors. One unusual requirement for people after their audience was that they had to go backwards towards the exit and could only turn around once they'd reached the low wall in the photo and worked their way around it.
Another WS shows a corner of the citadel where people can take in the views below.
