At reconstruction of park the remarkable monument to the compatriot - Khodzhi Kamol Khudzhandi here has been established, the symbolical mausoleum-tomb of the poet has been constructed.
On seven-meter on height a monument the poet is represented barefooted, with grief peering afar, there, where there was its native house. That he barefooted, symbolizes love of the poet to wanderings.
 The Poet has spent the most part of the life far from the native ground, in the Iranian city of Tabriz where created the well-known gazelles (in the Persian language). The most part of its verses expresses melancholy on the native house and are filled by bitterness of parting with the Native land.
