Dushanbe - Tajikistan

Dushanbe is Tajikistan's capital city. Tajikistan is a new country in my collection and the card was sent by  Emerich.
On the image is Sadriddin Aini Monument.
Sadriddin Aini (27 April 1878 - 15 July 1954) was a Tajik intellectual who wrote poetry, fictional writing, journalism, history and lexicography. He is regarded as Tajikistan's national poet and one of the most important writers in the country's history. - in: wikipedia

 This monument is located in the main square and was built in 1978 to honor the 100th anniversary of the birth of Sadriddin Aini. This stone and bronze monument highlights some of the most famous characters from "The Father of Tajik literature's" work.
