The statue is in a recently built park. The greenery and flowers are nice. There are reflecting pools on two sides.

The statue is like Amir Timur himself is very impressive. Very well placed standing so that the White Palace poses as the backdrop to a wonderful image. You cannot help like everyone else to have your photo taken here. Don't miss this when visiting Shakhrisabz.

The Father of Uzbekistan is appropriately displayed in the eponymously named park in the usual fashion: tall, muscular, and in motion. At this point in my travels I had seen two other statues of Timur (on a horse in Tashkent and on a throne in...More
