Tashkent, Uzbekistan

For a city that dates back to 2nd century BC, Tashkent (known earlier as Chachkand; literally translated to "Stone City") looks quite modern. But then again, she's only been independent since 1991. In fact, Tashkent used to be the go-to exile destination for everyone that the Tsar took a disliking to.

In fact, one of the first things that the Uzbeks probably did after independence is replace Lenin's statue, located at the President's "White House', with this monument of independence & humanism.

Located close to the White House, known as Lenin square prior to independence, the Mustaqillik Maydoni (Independence Square) hosts the annual Independence day celebrations. More like a large park than a square, there are several fountains, public buildings and monuments including the Arch of Independence and the Independence Monument.

Hast Imam Complex

This complex houses the mausoleum of the first Imam of Tashkent city, Abu-Bakr Muhammad Kaffal Shashi, the Madrasah of Barak-Khan and Tilla Sheikh Mosque.

Amongst the many collections in the library of the Madrasah of Barak-Khan is the world famous Quran of the Khalifa Uthman. In 650, Khalifa Uthman commissioned a committee to compile all the different versions of the Holy Quran into one standard complete book.

When Amir Timur ransacked Kufa (Iraq), he is believed to have carried this Quran to Samarkand. The Russians later carried it away to display in the Imperial Library in St. Petersburg. It was returned to Tashkent after independence and rests here now.

Chorsu Bazaar

Chorsu, meaning crossroads, is located close to the Kukeldash Madrasah. Back in the day when Tashkent was a popular stop on the Silk Route, this bazaar was the hub of all the trading activity in Tashkent.

Do stop by one of the traditional chaikhanas (cafes) for a taste of the shasliks & pilafs.

Palace of Prince Romanov

In the 19th century, Grand Duke Nikolai Konstantinovich, a first cousin of Alexander III of Russia was banished to Tashkent. His palace still survives in the centre of the city.

After his death, the building housed the Museum of Arts, then of Antiques and Jewelry, and is now the Reception House of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Lal Bahadur Shastri Monument

In January 1966, Lal Bahadur Shastri, then Prime Minister of India visited Tashkent on the behest of the USSR for peace talks with Pakistan during the Indo-Pak war of 1965.

On 10 Jan, the Tashkent declaration was signed with the President of Pakistan, Ayub Khan. At around 1 am later that night, Shastriji died of a heart attack.
