Assorted Glimpses of Tashkent

Tashkent, Uzbekistan.

One of the city symbols is this set of three silver birds flying above a globe.

A landmark.
Sirk = Circus. One of the stranger structures of Tashkent. It bears a slight resemblance to the circus building in Ulaanbaatar.

A skygazer's view of the entrance to the Islamic University.
From the metro entrance/exit of the Chorsu Bazaar can be glimpsed this unusual structure, which looks like it could be a truncated version of the Tower of Babel.
