Amir Temur Square

Amir Temur Square is located in the very heart of the city. In its center is a monument to Amir Temur (Tamerlane), an outstanding politician and commander of the Middle Ages, who created a huge unified empire that stretched from the Caucasus to China and from Siberia to India and lasted 200 years in the 14th-15th centuries. The majestic pose of the horseman and his outstretched hand symbolize patronage, the promise of peace and prosperity. The inscription on the pedestal in four languages reads: “Strength in justice.”

In plan, the square is a radial-ring layout system: 8 alleys give rise to 8 streets, oriented according to parts of the world and fanning out from the monument to Amir Temur, intersecting with the ring streets. Important roads to all corners of our country and neighboring states begin from here.

Amir Temur Square is surrounded by a number of buildings, such as the Uzbekistan Hotel, the State Museum of Temurid History, two oblong brick buildings of the University of Law and the famous chimes.
