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.

Reviews

  • "This book peers into the annals of time to show how Astana is the latest iteration of an age-old quest to rebuild the architecture of a paradise on Earth. We discover that Astana is more than just the new capital of the New World Order and the Illuminati, but instead a city of architectural splendour that provides a peaceful roadmap to world harmony and planetary sustainability. The photographs are breathtaking and after a few pages you will have forgotten everything you previously thought about the land of Borat!" - April Singleton Link to review
