Two Islamic buildings vs. one European, and for good reason. Islamic architecture has mastered the dome.

I choose the Taj Mahal. Its simply one of the greatest buildings ever created.
I may change my mind after I've visited all three buildings.

I think only one is Islamic - the Taj

Best one too...

The best European domed building is Florence Duomo - the others are just...so so

Haghia Sofia is nice but bland and rundown looking imo, St Peters is stunning though

Although Firenze's Il Duomo had a much more unique dome-cunstruction I'll vote for the Taj Mahal.

St. Peter Basilica



St. Peter Basilica was built by some of the most important architects of all time (Michelangelo, Bramante, Bernini, Maderno).
It is not only the biggest church of Christianity, but it is also a sort of museum.
Inside the church, the most important masterpiece is surely the Michelangelo's Pietà.

Florence Duomo is not the best domed building in Europa. And in Florence there are other churches that are more beautiful, like Santa Maria Novella, San Lorenzo, Santo Spirito and Santa Croce.
