"Shida Square, the sandal statue" is a roundabout with a construction of two giant sandals. The monument is under rebuilding now. The first photo is taken from another website, and shows what it was like before. The two last photos is taken in the end of December 2008. It doesn't look appealing...
The monument was unveiled on the occasion of the 10th anniversary of independence. "Shida" is the Arabic word for sandals. The sandal statue is 5 meters long and made of metal.
