Pyramid / Mosque

At the far end of the Astana Mall is a cave which is the entrance into the pyramid area.

They call it the Temple of Peace and Reconciliation.  Every three years, the country of Kazakhstan invites leaders from all the world religions to a conference.

The doves are part of the design at the top of the pyramid.

As part of Astana Days, a new mosque was dedicated.  It is across from the pyramid.  The design is inspired by the Taj Mahal.  The man speaking at the dedication ceremony is the president of Kazakhstan.

The family is the Craigs.  Brother Craig is teaching at the English university here.
