Looking north toward Khan’s Palace

Looking north toward Khan's Palace

As you walk by the colonnade of columns which holds up the roof to the Museum of the Healer’s house and Handicraft workshops, you will cross over and under the beautiful glass roof that acts as a canopy for the Khan’s Palace. When you are under this canopy looking north you will see the cliffs beyond which is where stone quarry lies that was used to build the many structures of the city. This had to have been quite the feat for them since they needed to cross the Volga river to quarry and then return back with the stones to build these buildings.
