This is the symbol of one of the most significant events in Turkmenistan - Day of Declaration of Independence on October 27, 1991. You can find it at the highest point of the southern part of National Park of Independence in Ashgabat. The height of this structure is 118 m. This figure has a symbolical meaning and is dated for a historical event expressed in the sum of two data 27 (October) + 91 (year) =118. At the height of 91 m the main view platform is located. The monument represents not only an architectural symbol, but also is acting like a museum and is closely connected with the history of the past and today's Turkmenistan. That is why the main remarkable sights of the Monument are sculptures of the great historical public figures of the state, among them, the First President of Turkmenistan Saparmurat Turkmenbashy.
