Agreed. Just the thought that they already had the knowledge and materials 2000 years ago to build this structure, let alone the fact that it has survived in pristine condition until this very day, is mind-boggling already.

So it means Istiglal Mosque in Jakarta has the largest dome, since it has 45 m diameter, representing the year of Indonesian Independence's year 1945.

I don't think stadiums and expo centers should be included...

Palace of Parliment, Bucharest.


While it have a "small" 42m dome, the sheer size of the building make it look insignificant.
