What's your favourite religious building?

The religious building in the world which I like mostly is the cathedral of Chartres (France), this is one of the best examples of the early gothic architecture.

This one

Milan's Duomo (1386)
The Duomo di Milano is a famous large and elaborate Gothic Cathedral (Duomo ) on the main square in the center of the city of Milan, Italy. Milan's Duomo is the second largest Roman Catholic cathedral: only the cathedral of Seville is larger (as is Saint Peter's Basilica in Rome, which is not a cathedral). It is 157 meters long and a total of 40,000 people can fit comfortably within. The great windows of the choir were reputed to be the largest in the world.

St Paul's cathedral (1708)

A symbol of London's resistance during World War 2. The City endured 60 consecutive nights of aerial bombing,
yet miraculously the cathedral survived.

I went there a couple of years ago and to be honest, I wasnt overly impressed. I think there are many more which are better.

I don't know if it is actually a religious building but the Chicago Temple Building is perfect. The St. Patricks Cathedral in New York is my other choice and I've always been fascinated by St. Basils in Moscow's Red Square.

to me, the greatest achievement in gothic architecture is the Notre-Dame Cathedral in Amiens (North of France).
