The physical motivations and advantages of the new gamma-observatory TAIGA (Tunka Advanced Instrument for cosmic ray physics and Gamma Astronomy) is presented. The TAIGA array is a complex, hybrid detector for ground-based gamma-ray astronomy for energies from a few TeV to several PeV as well as for cosmic ray studies from 100 TeV to several EeV. The TAIGA will include the wide angle Cherenkov array TAIGA-HiSCORE with ~5 km$^{2}$ area, a net of 16 IACT telescopes (with FOV of about 10x10 degree), muon detectors with a total area of up to 2000-3000 m$^{2}$ and the radio array Tunka-Rex.
