Palace of Happiness or Wedding Palace in Ashgabat, Turkmenistan. The Palace Of Happiness, a twisted globe enclosed in a cube of eight-pointed stars, is the official marriage registry office. The wedding venue features a room where newlyweds are required to pose in front of a portrait of the President.
Turkmenistan is a single-party country, a former Soviet state, run by a president at the center of a cult of personality.
The capital called Ashgabat was recently noted by the Guinness Book of World Records as having the most white marble-clad buildings in the world — 543 new buildings lined with white marble covering a total area of 4.5 million square meters.
