A lovely monument to remember the earthquake and the recovery from it. The stone mural behind the statue shows interesting scenes about the recovery.

The Monument of Courage or the Monument of the Earthquake should be visited by everyone coming to Tashkent or living in Tashkent because this is the monument which speaks about complete destructiona dnreconstruction of the most populated city of Central Asia.

On April 26, 1966 a massive earthquake occurred, and the epicenter was in Tashkent. Dozens of people and about 30,000 people lost their homes. This earthquake destroyed most of the most interesting historical parts of Tashkent, and it was rebuilt on the bland monochromatic Soviet...More

At 5:27 on 26th April 1966 there was an earthquake measuring 5.1 with its epicenter in central Tashkent. I know this because at the base of the statue there is a black marble block depicting the time and date. Much of Tashkent was destroyed and...More
