Wouldn't say this is the best dome but in the new world our Royal Exhibition Building Dome has some historic meaning as the place where our Government first stood for the Federation of Australia in 1901.....and this building is the first Australian Building with World Heratige listing....and it's the only World Exhibition Building still existing from the 19th century.

Very beautiful buildings! Especially Agia Sofia, Pantheon and Taj Mahal.
Surely not the most impressive, but still the largest Byzantine style cathedral in the Balkans and among the largest Orthodox cathedrals in the world:

Agios Andreas (Saint Andreas/Andrews), Patra, Greece:

The Mormon Tabernacle, Salt Lake City

Originally the Tabernacle was built without any nails. The famed acoustics are so good a pin dropped at the pulpit under the organ pipes can be heard in any part of the room.

This is how the Tabernacle looked in the late 1800's.
