The house was built in 1891 by Fayzulla's father, Ubaidullah, who was a wealthy merchant. Fayzulla lived in this house until 1925, when the Soviets then turned it in to a school. Fayzullah is famous for plotting with the Bolsheviks to overthrown the khan of Bukhara. He was rewarded for his assistance with promotion to the presidency of the Bukhara's People's Republic, then chairmanship of the Council of People’s Commissars of the Uzbek SSR, and then execution under the orders of Stalin. The house is marvellous decorated, with elegant frescoes and latticework.
