This book lays out a foundation myth encoded into the breathtaking architecture of Astana, the capital city of Kazakhstan. An omnibus of folk epic, archaeological research, and code-breaking symbolism, Astana advances challenging ideas and offers a wealth of fresh insights into the hidden complexities embedded deep within one of the most remarkable cities on Earth. It shows that Kazakhstan’s destiny as a harbinger of peace and a centre of stability, adaptability, and security in the world, is part of a pan-national epic concealed in the heart of Central Asia. This book provides a unifying opus of human, cultural, and religious connectedness and reveals Kazakhstan’s shimmering new capital to be more than a symbolic statement marking the birth of a new nation—it instead provides an architectural roadmap for the peaceful destiny of the world.


The special edition contains a secret code or puzzle that will earn the first winner to decipher it an all-inclusive trip to Astana worth $30,000!
