The building was opened to visitors in 2014 and the people have renamed it the Castle of Light, referring to the poem written by the Latvian poet Auseklis (1850-1879) that stands for a repository of wisdom. The idea underlying the exterior of the building stems from the play The Golden Horse written by Rainis (1865-1929) where the author depicts a glass mountain with a sleeping princess and only the pure-minded Antiņš can ride up the hill and wake the princess.
