You can note from the picture the gold monument to himself. Like many monuments in Ashgabat, the president is personally represented more »
Super clean and super nice view at night. If you are lucky you get to see them change guard shift which is amazingly unique.
I would describe this city, at most, as 'interesting'. Empty, sterile city with ridiculous statues and monuments everywhere.
A brief visit but, a must stop and see visit. Beyond the monument is also a park which it's situated in. Walk around a bit!
Beautiful land escaping and fantastic artistic made staues representing role of hero's in Turkmans history
