The monument is huge, it is designed in a nice manner, revealing the tragic happening. It is surrounded by beautiful flowers and green park. The monument gives illustration of the happening and after life of the involved ones.

The cracked stone with date and time are intriguing and say something.

The statue itself seems to not be related to the earthquake itself - just striving too hard to be an acceptable Socialist artwork from Soviet times. And the images behind it also seemed rather random.

I found it more confusing as a memorial than something like this should have been, and therefore less moving than I had anticipated.

If in the area, then come for a few minutes, but not worth hunting down.

Easy to get to this impressive monument. Solidly Soviet in style but quite an emotional place. Definitely worth visiting.

The bronze clad statues are larger than life but the human element is evident and poignant. The gardens and public spaces around the monument are beautifully maintained.

the monument, apparently, was recently painted and is shiny bronze now, but is still worth seeing and taking a river walk in the park around it!

A dramatic monument located at the epicentre of the earthquake that destroyed the city in 1976 and dedicated to the people who rebuilt the city with a central statue and a series of metal panels highlighting different aspects of the work.

A superb statue constructed to commemorate the dead (only 4 reported) from the Great Earthquake and the construction effort to replace the 20,000 dwellings destroyed in 1966.

It is diffcult to believe that only 4 people died when 20,000 buildings were destroyed. Personally I rationalise this down to the people in the 20,000 buildings would most likely have been killed or trapped leaving very few survivors and therefore few people were likely to have been reported as missing befause there was noone left to do the reporting

In remembrance of the earthquake that happened there in 1966 killing 14 people. Our guide gave us the whole rundown on the city survives a 9.0+ earthquake In the city centre. The memorial represents the other Soviet Nations that came to help Tashkent in this very tough time.

The only Russian-built monument left in the city (we were told), this is certainly worth seeing because of its definitely Russian look and the earthquake recovery it celebrates.

Soviet Era Monument to the April 26 1966 Tashkent Earthquake which destroyed virtually the entire city. Memorial was built on the 10th anniversary and in addition to the typical soviet era statue (I actually quite like the brutalism of soviet era statues and monuments) they have immortalised both the earthquake fissure and the time of the quake itself. There is also an interesting stone mural behind the statue depicting scenes from the post quake relief effort.

Well worth a 30 min stop.
