The heart of Tashkent is Amir Timur Square. There is a symbol of the city on it - the famous Tashkent chimes. Around this square are located:
State Museum of Timurids;
Palace of International Forums.
The park was named in honor of Amir Timur in 1993 to celebrate the third anniversary of Uzbekistan's independence. At the beginning of 1991, the square was subject to reconstruction and improvement. Flower beds and fountains appeared, alleys widened, and a bronze monument to the famous commander was erected in the center.
The square has a layout in the form of a ring and eight streets start from here, fanning out from the monument and oriented to the parts of the world. This is a symbol of the beginning of all achievements in the state.
