Oguz Khan Fountain Complex, Turkmenistan




Fountain complex consists of 27 color fountains of 14.82 hectars. In the center of fountain stands a sculpture of 16 meters hight father of the Turkmen nation Oguz Khan. There are six other smaller statues showing his six sons - Gun Khan (ruler of the sun), Ai Khan (ruler of the Moon), Yildiz Khan (ruler of the stars), Geock Khan (ruler of the sky), Dag Khan (ruler of the mountains) and Dengiz Khan (ruler of the sea). They ''meet'' the guest of Ashgabat on the highway leading from the International Airport to the center of the capital. Thank you Jeren!

  1. I loved the stamp. It is a promo for the gas pipeline Turkmenistan-China.
