Admire a landmark of the capital city at Statue of Ismoil Somoni, an impressive bronze statue of the national 10th century hero. The statues stands on a huge red marble stairway pedestal flanked by two cross-legged lions. Standing in front of a monumental arch topped by a large gilt crown, Isma’il ibn Ahmed--founder of the Samanid dynasty who renounced Zoroastrianism, embraced Islam, and even gave name to national currency--holds a gold-leafed coat of arms of the country. Erected in 1999, this 25 m (82 ft) tall monument honors the 1,100 anniversary of the Samanid Empire. Climb the pedestal to get a nice view behind the monument.
