Presidents Shavkat Mirziyoyev and Emomali Rahmon visited the Park named after Nizomiddin Alisher Navoi, in Dushanbe.
The Park is created by the Order of the President of the Republic of Tajikistan of March 5, 2018. The document provided for installation of monuments to Nuriddin Abdurahman Jami and Nizomiddin Alisher Navoi as a sign of friendship between people of Tajikistan and Uzbekistan. A competition was announced for preparation of their project.
On the eve of the visit of the Head of Uzbekistan, monuments to great poets and thinkers have been erected in the park. On September 27, representatives of government and state authorities, writers and youth attended the event.
Shavkat Mirziyoyev and Emomali Rahmon solemnly opened the park and monuments. They laid flowers at the monuments to Alisher Navoi and Abdurahman Jami.
This event became a logical continuation of similar activities carried out in Uzbekistan. As it is known, on March 7, 2018, monuments to Alisher Navoi and Abdurahman Jami were erected in the Central Park of Samarkand. It is noteworthy that the street adjacent to this park was also named in honor of Abdurahman Jami, and the park named after Alisher Navoi is adjacent to square named after another Persian-Tajik poet Abu Abdullo Rudaki.
