Architectural masterpieces in your country

One of them in Iran is Soltaniyeh (built in 1302 AD), tallest brick dome in the world, and also the first double-shell dome.

First it should open itself to its own people, unfortunately we Iranians feel living in a prison, not an actual country.

Another architectural masterpiece in Iran was built in the same region and by the same king who built Soltaniyeh, this king was baptized a Christian and given the name Nicholas, he also built some beautiful churches, but he changed his religion several times, he became Buddhist, Taoist, Sunni Muslim, Shia Muslim, ... His other names are Muhammad Khodabandeh, and of course Oljeitu.

Differnt architectural styles were mixed and a huge temple with an area of about 120,000 sq-m (400x300 m) was built by the order of this king, one of the largest temples ever built, unfortunately most of this great temple (temple of dragons) was destroyed in later times, but part of it which was cut into the heart of the mountain still exists.

Buenos Aires
El palacio de las aguas - Waters Palace

Built between 1887-1894, used as a huge water deposit for the city. Was designed and built in blocks, like a puzzle, using 170.000 ceramic pieces and 150.000 glazed bricks from Belgium and England. All numered to facilitate their placement.
The idea to place a water deposit inside a huge and luxurious palace was very expensive, and very criticized too, but at that time, Buenos Aires and Argentina lived a very prosperous moment with economic abundance and used to build it anyway.

One of the most beautiful building in this city

Architect: Olaf Boye (Norway)
Civil Engineer: Carlos Nystönner (Sweden)

The Temple of Great Jaguar,
Tikal, Guatemala:


"Tikal Temple I is the designation given to one of the major structures at Tikal, one of the largest cities and archaeological sites of the pre-Columbian Maya civilization in Mesoamerica. It is located in the Petén Basin region of northern Guatemala. It also is known as the Temple of the Great Jaguar because of a lintel that represents a king sitting upon a jaguar throne. Another name is the Temple of Ah Cacao, for the ruler buried in the temple. Temple I is a typically Petén-styled limestone stepped pyramid structure that is dated to approximately 730 CE.

Situated at the heart of a World Heritage Site, the temple is surmounted by a characteristic roof comb, a distinctive Maya architectural feature. Building Temple I on the eastern side of the Great Plaza was a significant deviation from the established tradition of building funerary temples just north of the plaza in Tikal's North Acropolis.

The temple rises 47 meters (154 ft) over the Great Plaza."
