White Marble Monuments of Ashgabat

It’s hard to miss how striking Ashgabat, the capital of Turkmenistan can be. Situated in the middle of a desert, a wayward traveller would think he is seeing a mirage of sorts off in the distance but Ashgabat is more than a mere mirage. Mirages are not made out of pure white and solid marble. This expensive material covers about 95 percent of all buildings in the capital.
