At this place is the square of the Fallen Warriors, where located a memorial and lit an Eternal flame in honor of the heroes of the Civil war. Eternal flame is a symbol of remembrance to the fallen, the eternal light of love and kindness. Officially, the Soviet power in Yakutia was established in 1922, however, the civil war in Yakutia lasted fr om 1921 to 1929. Here, the area is a mass grave where buried 30 people. The first burial was made in the winter of 1922. The square and the memorial located on the site of the battle that decided the fate of the city. If you look forward over the Green meadow, in the distance you can see Tabaginsky Cape, wh ere he was the detachment of one of the opposing sides of red army. Here, on the southern outskirts of the city, strengthened their opponents - the ‘whites’. Here occurred the decisive battle in which the red army won. The memorial was established in 1977 (sculptor V. Karamzin). It is interesting in itself, as is done in the style of ancient Yakut burials, which is called ‘arangas’. The fact that before the advent of Christianity in the Lena region, there were common graves are not underground, and the air type.
