The City of White Marbles 
The City of White Marbles (14)Ashgabat is the capital of Turkmenistan and the country’s largest city. Ashgabat is a relatively young city having grown out of a village of the same name established by the Russians in 1881, which itself grew on the ruins of the Silk Road city of the 2nd century BC, Konjikala.

After dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991, the city underwent rapid development and impressive architectural re-styling – there are wide boulevards, green parks, residential towers, magnificent government buildings, mosques, and museums. The most striking feature of Ashgabat is the marble. Hundreds of soaring government buildings and apartment blocks are clad in imported Italian marble.
