This place used to be the pride of our nation. The center of our arts and culture. It is now rundown and in need of renovation. I hope the government realizes the importance of the role of arts and culture in any society.

The government spent alot of money to build this structure, and renovation, upgrade, or fresh paint here and there will surely keep tourists coming.

The place isnt an architectural wonder, could be ok to visit if you already seen all the other attraction in the area, or to see a show. Generally speaking isn't also super well preserved, I presume this giant concrete box has seen better times.
