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.

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

The statue is like Amir Timur himself is very impressive. Very well placed standing so that the White Palace poses as the backdrop to a wonderful image. You cannot help like everyone else to have your photo taken here. Don't miss this when visiting Shakhrisabz.
