Mughal architecture is generally mostly all splendid!

Great synthesis of regional architectural forms, perfect symmetry and great attention to detail. Not overdone, and not too sober either. Love how it all goes so well together!

Well, I was going to post the Barcelona Pavilion, but I thought about it and obviously there is no such thing as the most beautiful building. I don't think most of these old temples or churches are beautiful. I think they're gaudy.

Then go somewhere else. It's not our fault most modern buildings look like turds. Old buildings had a greater attention to detail, more elegance and more opulence than the ugly apartments and skyscrapers of the 20th Century. Besides, it's not like any of the buildings you posted were beautiful.

MODERN

they made decent buildings during the 1st half of the 21st century, and a few of the recent futuristic buildings look alright. but 50s-90s architecture is the worst
