I really like the Kölner Dom. It's really one of the most impressive cathedrals out and, IMO, even more stunning than Notre Dame.

... no synagogues ...

hhhmmmmmmmm ...... ten pages of religious buildings and no Jewish Synagogues ........... ????????????



Of course one the largest and most beautiful synagogues was the Churva Synagogue in Jerusalem built over the ruins of a century old synagogue destroyed by the Muslims in 1587; it was finished in the year 1700 by Rabbi Judah he Levi, known as Judah the Chasid. Unfortunately it was intentially torn down and destroyed stone by stone when the Jordanian army invaded the Jewish Quarter in 1948.

The Hagia Sophia was the most beautiful christian church.


It is a shame, that the St. Nikolai church (147 meters) in Hamburg, will not be restored.

It was one of the highest cathedrals in the world.

It was used by British- and US-Bombers as a navigation point.

Catholic churches in India are typically built in Iberianesque Baroque style, since the majority were built by the Portuguese. Goa has a massive array of intricate and beautiful churches and cathedrals.

That church building in Mexico, takes the cake for minute intricate details among Christian edifices featured here that can only be rivalled by Hindu temples in their embelishments.
Goan churches are also very intricately crafted, I think they may be a better comparison to Mexican churches, especially since both were built in a similar style.
