Ashgabat is the town of huge and ostentatious monuments with large and spacious parks around. Even if you don't like to visit monuments, you need at least to visit one or a few to look at the scale, ornaments, the fountains and details. It's part of Ashgabat´s appearance and culture anyway.

This monument is told to be a symbol connecting the past and future of Turkmenistan. Around the central part, looking like a huge yurt with needle, you can see lots of dark statues of the heroes of Turkmenistan and fighters for the freedom of Turkmenistan.

Directions: In the Berzengi area south of the citycentre.
