The Hall of Fame forum is where we decide about our all-time favourites from the world of skyscrapers, skylines, buildings and cities. Every week users can nominate and vote in a specific category.

Well, technically speaking, only completed buildings are allowed to be chosen, so no.

Cologne Dom, is insanely big. It looks like several other people beat me to it and also agree. Gothic architecture at its finest. I've seen it in person and you can't miss it.

2.St,basils, never been there but it looks cool.

3.Taj Mahal. Awesome.

Taj Mahal's a mausoleum..doesn't count. If people are sighted praying there, that would be prayers for the dead.

As for me

1) Dome of the Rock, Jerussalem
2) Blue Mosque(Sultan Ahmet), Istanbul
3) Hagia Sophia, Istanbul

How about the Cathedral Notre-Dame de Reims?






Otherwise I'd go for St. Pietro, Blue Mosque and I really love the Church of the Savior on Blood in St. Petersburg.
