This thread needs a little variety. If it is supposed to be "Churches and Cathedrals of the World" than it should have a little more than just Northern European Gothic and Southern European Neoclassical. Come on people, you can do better than this.

Here is something from Orange County California. Crystal Cathedral

Steeple added a year later after a successful appeal from the Mormons.

Some Indian temples, mostly Hindu, but some of other sects. I love the uniqueness and complexity of their architecture.

I have to say I do love these Italian and French "into the side of a cliff" churches and towns. They are definitely something straight out of a fairy tale. Beautiful, impressive, and almost mystical.
