The Neutrality Arch was erected by Saparmurat Niyazov to commemorate Turkmenistan's official neutrality. The structure is the tallest building of the capital Ashgabat. It features ornate runic inscriptions and a glass elevator. Atop the monument is a gold-plated statue of Niyazov which rotates 360 degrees every 24 hours so as to always face the sun.
