Again, development pressure on the protection of the heritage site...however, the Kazakhstan's grand plan, called Caravanserai project, described as Central Asia’s largest tourism complex is quite shocking, as it contains a 'flying theater', an amphitheater, a big market, hotels, restaurants, etc. Hope the revised master plan would seriously consider OUV of the site and fully respect its landscape. What a pity that the reactive monitoring cannot be conducted as soon as possible due to this pandemic-!!
