The exhibition, which will run until Sept. 5, aims to share Kazakhstan’s unique model of interfaith and interethnic harmony, home to more than 130 ethnicities coexisting peacefully.

“The exhibition includes over 20 photographs related to Islam, Christianity, Judaism, and Buddhism. It will be of interest to the public because the photos were sent to us from Egypt, Islamabad, Russia, and other countries. We also plan to hold an exhibition at the National Museum dedicated to the history of religion in Kazakhstan, as well as a photo exhibition near the Baiterek monument dedicated to the history of the Congress,” said Nazarbayev Center Chair Bulat Sarsenbayev.
