It is indeed a tomb, but it's heavily influenced by Islamic and Hindu traditions. It has the (fully functional) minarets typical of a mosque, it's decorated with passages from the Koran and it has the crescent moon on top of it. One of the surrounding buildings that are part of the Taj Mahal is actually a mosque too.

It is an amazing cathedral! been to the highest point and saw the whole City of London! plus the bells were ringing for hours for Easter day which was amazing :-)

My vote goes to Notre Dame as well.

Seeing it for the first time, lit up at night is astonishing....

Probably because I'm American, but I've always been in love with the National Cathedral in Washington DC.







Though I adore most older religious structures in the Western word.

Washington cathedral is enormous and beautiful, but it's 20th century cathedral copying 13th century european models. And has a Darth Vader gargoyle! Pic by smata2, from Flickr.

So? It is still amazing. We weren't around in the 13th century.
Also, the space window.

We also have Wilson's tomb inside.

Well, it's obviously not the same imitating a 13th century building with 20th century materials, finantiation, machines and workers. Beautiful? Of course. Valueless, too (and I'm saying that and in my city, Madrid, the cathedral is also a 20th century neogothic building too, and much worse than Washington's one)
