Details of itinerary & mapThe Amir Timur Museum, the newest Tashkent's museum is quite an impressive structure with blue ribbed dome and a richly decorated interior. Most of the displays are the models of Timur's and Timurids greatest building projects.
The Amir Timur Square is the centre of what was once known as the "new Russian city. It appeared in 1883, when Russians first settled in Tashkent. Since then the Square has always reflected the ruling government's policy at that time. At present a gigantic statue of Amir Timur (1336-1405) mounted on a horse stands in the centre of the square. However, it was not always so. Earlier to him the statue of Karl Marx and before him Joseph Stalin occupied the place. But it all started with the statue of Constantine Kaufmann who was the first Russian Governor of Turkestan.
