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.

    Since you will have learnt/be learning about Timur on your travels, you might as well see yet another statue of the great man  more »

    This square is another place of reference in the city. Without being a site especially spectacular, square, crowned by the statue of Amir Timur, well worth a photo

    Huge place, around featured buildings, such as the city's largest Congress Hall, the library, the hotel Uzbekistan. The base wearing Amir Temur Lenin, Marx, Engels prior to the mass murderer (it must take only enough time to become a national hero), was then for a time without hero simply empty.

    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.
