Sacre Coeur not only features prominently, it also offers a very lovely view. Quite a great place to be indeed.

Is Mecca's existence solely entrenched as the centre for Islam? If so, it should be the largest religious centre in terms of city size.

Very nice! Reminds me of the Sydney Opera House.

Masjid-e-Jahan Numa: A brilliant marriage of RED SANDSTONE & WHITE MARBLE all the way to the top of Minarets.

Jama Mosque - Masjid-e-Jahan Numa - "Mosque that Commands the World's View", Old Delhi, India

Thats what it means. & such a view it commanded that Its South Asia's premier mosque architecturally & was immitated often but never duplicated to perfection by any other mosque in Indian Subcontinent. Some of noteworthy copies are King's Mosque, Lahore (pakistan). Taj-ul-Mosques, Bhopal & Big Imambara, Lucknow. Jama Mosque is the most important, most visited & the most photographed mosque of South Asia (Indian Subcontinent).

By subcontinental, you mean India, right? Well, I noticed you generally tend to overdo things there. And I don't mean anything negative about that. I understand that the design isn't only an ornamentation but reflects the beliefs of the religion.

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. It looks baroque but seems to have finer details. Even St. Peter's seems to have simple lines in comparison.
