Explore the Beauty of Independence Park in Ashgabat

Nestled in the southern outskirts of Ashgabat, Independence Park stands as a captivating attraction near 10-Anniversary of Prosperity Avenue and Archabil Avenue. It’s not just a tourist hotspot; it’s beloved by the city’s residents as well.

One charming tradition here is the visit of newlyweds. If you want to witness a joyous wedding celebration and “gelinanji” (bride’s friends and family), and marvel at the exquisite craftsmanship of Turkmen women displayed through various Turkmen dress models, this is the place to be. You can also immerse yourself in Turkmen wedding traditions by arriving around 11 in the morning, from the side of Archabil Avenue.

Independence Park boasts an array of monuments scattered across its 140-hectare expanse. Stroll down the main alley, adorned with five-headed eagle fountains and statues of national heroes, and ascend the grand marble stairs to the Independence Monument. Here, you’ll feel the essence of modern Turkmenistan.

The centerpiece is a striking 118-meter column crowned by a crescent moon and five stars, symbolizing the unity of the five Turkmen tribes. Don’t miss the gilded statue of Turkmenbashi, standing proudly in front of the Independence Monument.

For those with a penchant for cultural heritage, step inside the monument to discover the Museum of Independence. The opulent interior of its spacious halls is a feast for the eyes, drawing visitors with its rich decor.

Join us on a journey to Independence Park, where tradition, history, and modernity blend seamlessly.
