Every Uzbek is proud of Amir Temur because he was the liberator of Uzbek land from Genghis Khan’s invasion. Amir Temur Museum is located in the very center of Tashkent.
In its collection there are more than 5,000 exhibits from the era of the reign of Amir Timur and the Timurid dynasty. The opening of the museum in 1996 was timed to coincide with the celebration of the 660th anniversary of Timur’s birth, and the site was located near the square of Amir Timur, surrounded by beautiful parks, state and educational institutions.
The style of the building corresponds to the era to which it is dedicated – a round-shaped building is crowned with a huge blue dome and the walls are lined with mosaics in the national style. The interiors are solemnly decorated and impress with their pomp, whereas the second and third floors are fully devoted to the history of the famous dynasty. The interior of these halls is richly decorated with leaves of gold, marble, miniatures and oriental murals depicting historical paintings on the walls.
The exhibition includes archaeological, numismatic and ethnographic materials, military ammunition, skillful miniatures, paintings depicting Amir Timur performed by talented European artists.
