The one to beat. The grandest and one of the largest religious buildings in the world. A long-standing testimony to the glory of the Catholic Church.

SAINT PETER'S BASILICA


BTW, it gets destroyed in the upcoming Roland Emerich film "2012".

^Its a magnificent building, but I guess its got no novelty value because this type of architecture has since been done to the death several times over.

The Badshahi Mosque or the Emperor's Mosque was built in 1673 by the sixth Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb in Lahore, Pakistan. It is one of the city's best known landmarks, and a major tourist attraction epitomising the beauty and grandeur of the Mughal era.

This mosque is capable of accommodating over 55,000 worshippers, it is the second largest mosque in Pakistan, after the Faisal Mosque in Islamabad.

On the occasion of the second Islamic Summit held at Lahore on February 22, 1974, thirty-nine heads of Muslim states offered their Friday prayers in this Mosque.
