Like many of the Amir Timur statues throughout Uzbekistan, this one is very popular with locals, and particularly wedding parties.

The statue of Timur is large and impressive. But what makes this especially interesting is the Ak Saray (White Palace) in the background. This makes for a great photo op!

What can I say ? You've come to Shahrisabz, you've just walked past the Timur's palace, on the way to the madrassa - you cannot miss it. The authorities have razed the whole area and turned it into lawns, flowerbeds and empty shops . . . what a disgrace. Just take the selfie and move on.

If you are based in Samarkand and contemplating a trip down to Shakhrisabaz then I think it is worth making the effort - for the journey it's self as some of the views as one comes across the hills are gorgeous.

The statue it's self is certainly impoing - it sits in front of the ruins of part of his palace - the rest of whatever was here has been lost below very sanitised parkland - in fact the whole area which stretches in front of the statue has been developed iwith flats, shops and the like.

As commented on there are many brides who take the opportunity to have their photographs taken with the statue - which is really sweet I think.

Worth seeing as a statue but the trip to get here was better !

This grand statue stands in a new park surrounding the ruins of the palace. It faces south with the ruin behind. …. but the front façade of the palace remains faces north, so the photos show the undecorated back of the ruin.

This isn't worth seeing but as you are there then tak a photo or give it a miss. The structure behind this statue is amazing.

This regal statue surveys the surrounding area with great authority just like the man himself. Very photogenic

The statue is yet another big statue, done reasonably well. What is great though, is the Uzbekistan tradition that has developed for couples getting married to circle the statue slowly in full wedding clothes, pareticularly as the brides have a penchant for Disney princess wedding gowns. Not to be missed, particularly on weekend days with multiple couples circling at once.

The statue is in a recently built park. The greenery and flowers are nice. There are reflecting pools on two sides.

Shakhrisabz's monuments complex is a well maintained broad avenue, with the statue of Amir Timur as a focal point. The statue is contemporary and naturalistic, but it reflects the reverence Uzbeks have for Timur (Tamerlane), whom they consider as the originator of their fatherland. The statue is a good starting point for visiting the other monuments.
