One thing that is universally advised by spiritual authorities is modesty. But it is not a part of the canon. In case of Dharmic architecture I assume there are local canons regulating every little detail - which I suppose could be compared to icon-painting in Orthodoxy.

It's a family-oriented theme park. However, this part of it is authentic-style architecture (separate photo of the church (2 MB)).

Both photos contributed by the staff of the park's official web-site.

A quick glance through this thread and one will notice that it is dominated by an overwhelming number of religious examples. There is a reason for this but it is one which I do not care to elaborate on at this time.

The rigid criteria which I had established is not the easiest met but I feel that there is a fair representation of edifices from all of the world's major religions.

If you would prefer to see a greater display of Sikh Gurdwara's for example, then it is up to you to contribute to this thread as much as the rest of us.

Finally, this thread is not reserved only for religious monuments but for any structure which adhere to the tenets that I had promulgated early on.

It seems they're always looking for pretty traditional elements when building new orthodox churches, almost comparable to traditions in building Hindu temples. I haven't seen any modern examples so far, so I guess there aren't (m)any eh?
There are modern examples, but the vast majority is "traditional"

Hi ~ This is definitely not a traditional architectural style in India. It is inspired directly from the US Capitol, basically European architecture that has been modified to suit local tastes. I don't think it is suitable for this thread.
