I checked online whether the building is open before taking a taxi there, it said its open, but when I arrived there I got a surprise: closed due to renovation. They could not tell me when it will open. Very disappointed.

Had been looking forward to explore the "palace", but it was closed for 2 weeks without any further details. The information was only posted at the entrance, nowhere online, so all we could do was explore the pyramid from the outside (nothing special) and walk...More

To be honest in my opinion this building is not very attractive. It's pyramide shape with no a lot of interest. Maybe in the evening (I've seen in during the day) it become more interesting because it's lighted.

It is one of the important places for Kazakh folks. Worldly-wise person will find nothing there if he knows nothing about Kazakh's history. My personal opinion it should be seen. My score A for value not for architectural work.
