Wedding Palace, Turkmenistan
The Wedding Palace is a civil registry wedding venue in Ashgabat, Turkmenistan. It was commissioned by the national government and built by Turkish firm Polimeks, who completed it in 2011.
The 11 storey building covers an area of over 38,000 sq. m (410,000 sq. ft). It comprises three tiers, each side of which is shaped like an 8-pointed star. These tiers are staggered so that their points do not overlap.
The palace interior was designed in the traditional Turkmen style, and contains six rooms for marriage registration, holding up to 1,000 people. In the central part of the globe, the Golden Hall is also used for weddings.
The palace also contains a hotel, shopping centre, bridal rooms, cafes and an underground car park, while the exterior is surrounded by a landscape incorporating waterfall fountains and decorative plants.
