The Taj Mahal is not a religious structure.

Hassan II Mosque, Casablanca
It's the tallest religious structure in the world.
It's 210 meters tall!

Yes, I realise that now. It was discounted when it came to adding up the nominations.

WOW!! Amritsar's Golden Temple is unbelievably gorgeous!! I believe it is the Sikhs' holiest shrine, but what is its significance.

The Meenakshi Temple is gorgeous too.

I don't think this is a subject we should be having a contest on, because each place is the most beautiful to different people. To me, anyone who devotes his life's work to creating such beautiful places that we have seen here and elsewhere and is devoted to loving his fellow man has a beautiful piece of all these buildings in his soul.

For me:

Borobudur
Kölner Dom
Ankor Wat (but I think it was of mixed use, isn't it?)
Hagia Sophia
Meenakshi
Sagrada Familia (if once finnished )
and lots of gotic cathedrals in England and France as York, Lincoln, Canterbury, Notre Dame, Reimes....

I have to say Haram Shareef in Mecca. I mean being the centre of worship for 1.5 billion people has to count for something. And its not just like the vatican which is the most important in its religion. The 1.5 billion people actually have to face towards it while praying.

And also the Notre Dame Basilica in Montreal is another of my favourites. The exterior isn't all that fantastic... but the interior is breath-taking:
