Amir Temur Square, Tashkent

3.6
Admire a statue of Tamerlane and stroll around the hub of Tashkent's public life at Amir Temur Square, a large circular plaza with substantial green areas. The centerpiece equestrian bronze statue of Timur the Great, 14th-century founder of the 200-year-long Timurid empire, hails with his right hand while the pedestal bears his motto: "Strength in justice." Landmark buildings surround the square, including a Soviet-style hotel, the palace congressional hall, and the traditionally inspired state history museum. Stroll along or sit, watching families on their leisurely walks.

  • A wonderful monument of Amir Timur. You can sit on a bench. Patcharee Quietly beating the clock on towers.

  • Honestly I imagined differently the main square of the capital but it really isn't anything to write home about. Very large, green everywhere, beautiful statue of Amir Temur but nothing more.

  • Nice, but not special. From the comments of others, it has lost the character with removal of the old trees. I was disappointed by the lack of seating, especially in shaded areas.
  • Beautiful place. Very well maintained. Definitely worth a visit.
  • Used to be surrounded by thick trees. Now all gone. Part of another strange Uzbek govt action.
  • Never-mind the past story, nowadays it is nice place to walk and relax from the stressed traffic of Tashkent. From there the views is also nice and can appreciate some landmarks (clock towers and Forum Palace), the museum and hotels surrounding.
  • It was much better with old sycamore trees. Right now this place is barren.

Where to stay in Tashkent

Tashkent has a range of accommodations, with many good hotels empty during off-season from December through February. Most of the hotels lie scattered around the downtown area, stretching from southwest to northeast, with luxurious ones grouping on the northwest side. Book ahead during the peak months to make sure you get the place you want. A variety of backpackers' lodgings lie around the city's Chorsu bazaar.
