  • The area is located in the city centre near the place where before the middle of the 19th century was the Palace of Kokand khans. After the establishment of the Russian protectorate built residence of the Governor-General. In Soviet times, the area was renamed in honor of v. i. Lenin. In 1991 year monument to proletariat dismantled and installed in its place, the independence monument.
