There are different architectural styles in the world, which ones do you think can be mixed and make the best architectural style?

For example Taj Mahal can be a good sample of a mixed Persian and Indian styles:

I think a mixture of European and Persian styles can be even more beautiful, look at the interior of Vank cathedral in Isfahan, built in 50 years:

Architectural styles classify architecture in terms of form, techniques, materials, time period, region, etc. It overlaps with, and emerges from the study of the evolution and history of architecture.

I would also include St.Peters basilica in Vatican City. It is a great mix of Renaissance and Baroque architecture.

Isn't all architecture essentially "mixed"?
