Ashgabat, Turkmenistan

Guards stand beneath a golden statue of the former president Saparmurat Turkmenbashi Niyazov in front of the Independence Monument. The five headed eagle is the presidential emblem. This part of the capital was redesigned according to the aesthetical and architectural instructions of former president Saparmurat Niyazov. Many people were displaced by force to make room for the developments.
