Madrasah Qozi Kalon was built in 1905 by the chief judge (Qadi Kalan) of Khiva Salim Akhoon. The appearance of madrassahs and its dimensions are small and do not differ from other contemporary madrassahs. But the principle of teaching at those times this madrassah differed from other religious educational institutions. Here, along with other spiritual sciences they law studied, provided knowledge regarding rules and regulations of different taxes and dues (zakat), i.e. legal knowledges.

The madrassah is decorated by the low portal in front with the central facade facing north. Under a portal there is an entrance to a three-domed mionsaray madrassah through the doors decorated with carved patterns. On the right and on the left of the three-domed lobby the domed rooms of the winter mosque and the audience for students of the madrassah are located. In the madrassah there are 15 hujras roofed by the vault in ?Balkhi? style.
