Bobur Mausoleum in Andijan

by Harry Mitsidis - 5 years ago

Andijan doesn't really offer much - if anything at all - for the visitor, but there is the unexpected monument to Bobur on the outskirts. Bobur is the founder of the Mughal dynasty that ruled over the area and is hailed as a hero in these parts, and he was actually born in Andijon way back in 1483, so this tribute is befitting. In the area of the park there is even a ride up the hill in old Soviet-style carriages. Apart from a wedding party, oddly enough there was a Japanese group visiting when I was there. I wonder just how many foreigners make it.
