The Jubariy Sheikhs' family cemetery Chor-Bakr in Bukhara

Chor-Bakr (16-th - 17-th cc.) is a necropolis in Sumitan settlement near to Bukhara. It has developed around the graves of Khodja Abu Bakr Sa'd and Imam Abu Bakr Ahmed, whose activity dates from the time of Islam dissemination in Bukhara. Their descendants - khojas of Juibar - were the keepers of esteemed burial places - mazars. (Khoja or Khwaja, a Persian word literally meaning "master", was used in Central Asia as a title of the descendants of the earliest four successors (righteous caliphs) of Mohammad (Abu-Bakr, Omar, Osmon and Ali). The khoja(s) often played, or aspired to play, ruling roles in Muslim community in Turkistan).

In the 16-th century famous Khoja Islam Juibariy (died in 1563 AD) virtually founded a powerful dynasty called the Juibar khojas. Abdullah-khan II (gov. 1561-1598) was a disciple (murid) of Khoja Islam from his youth, he then came to power with the help of Khoja Islam, therefore Abdullah-khan always gave support to the clan. He built many religious and civil installations for them.

When Abdullah-khan became firmly established in Bukhara, he issued an edict on inclusion in a southwest part of the city of settlement Sumitan in order to protect the graves of Khoja Abu Bakr Sa'd and imam Abu Bakr Ahmed as well as other property of Juibar khojas. Around the graves Abdullah-khan constructed a complex of structures, which is mostly intact up to now. New sections of city wall together with gate called Darvaza-nau «New Gate» were built there. Later on, the completion up of all complex took much time.

The central complex consists of the khanaka, mosque and madrasah. The minaret stresses a large scale of main buildings. A narrow path sunk into the ground leads to a group of funeral family yards - hazira with entrance gates and eivans of memorial mosques. The architect of "Khoja Kalon Mosque" of the Khodja Gaukushan Ensemble also has been buried in Chor-Bakr
