Is there a building more detailed than this one:

Madrasa Chahar Bagh in Isfahan, The World's Masterpiece of Tile Work:

Tiles are monochrome. So to create this colorful decoration, millions of tiny tiles in different shapes and colors are put side by side.

Sanctuary of the Holy Mother of Pompeii, in Vigevano, Lombardy, Italy (a small but nice church)

































...Small, recent (XIX century), but very ornated. This small one is close to where I live, today I was passing by, I stepped inside, I admired its interiors and...published them! Hope you liked those images!
