Djuma Mosque, Khiva, Uzbekistan
Most of the columns were made of wood trunks in the 18th - 19th centuries. Others were made of ruined medieval buildings. The most ancient columns could be taken from the medieval capital of Khorezm - Kyat died in Amu Darya waters. Twenty one columns dates back to the 10th - 12th centuries and ornamented with Arabian inscriptions in Kufi. Four columns look like columns from Bagbanly Mosque with inscriptions in Naskh.
The columns of the 18th - 19th centuries are well recognized due to typical Khiva's floral-vegetative pattern. The columns are leveled by different stone 'pillows' and bases. Mihrab niche of Djuma-Mosque is roofed with ganch semi-dome decorated with floral pattern of iris and dog-rose on its sides.
