Amir Temur Square, Tashkent

(3.5/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Clean and quiet park. The only thing, but it's nice to walk quietly and see specifically. Near the Amur Timur will have to see the Museum location once you hear

  • Nice place. Now has Amur Timur than soviet leaders of the past. The center of Tashkent where you can view many buildings such as hotels and buildings. 4 fountains around the park adds beauty. It is said that there were longer trees in the past, according to a guide book.
  • This place is in the memory of Amir Temur. Very beautiful and historical place. I enjoyed visiting this place a lot.
  • Once there was a beautiful Square with cool, shaded walkways in between large, majestic "Platanus" trees (some were 100+ years old). After Uzbekistan became "independent", the local dictator cut them all down and instead planted young, tiny pine trees and random bushes of an unknown origin so that nothing would "obstruct" the view of the citizens towards the recent monument dedicated to newly-discovered "glorious superhero of Uzbekistan" (some ancient Turko-Mongol conqueror which happened to include Uzbekistan's territory into his temporary "empire" and who was responsible for the deaths of thousands of people in other countries). Imagine if Central Park in NYC would be completely cut down and all trees would be replaced by young palm trees - that's what basically happened. Nowadays there's NOTHING interesting to see there and it's not advisable to walk around it or sit on the benches during hot summer days (unless you actually want to get a heat stroke). What a terrible shame.
  • good place to take a walk and see a lot of tourists)
  • Relatively recent square. The trees are small and there is the clear fingerprint of Russian's communism
