This is the number one reason why Barcelona is one of the best tourist spot in Spain. Barcelona having so many attractions and being one of the top places to visit in Europe, is not only a place for couples, friends and so on yet this city is also a family friendly city, there are places that you can take your children with you. There activities and places in the city where you can take your children and let them experience and enjoy at the same time a family day together with you in this Spanish city. If one wants to travel to Spain, you can stay at cheap Barcelona hotels or at a vacation home. Either way, visitors experience a very relaxing kind of vacation here in Spain.

Akshardham employed thousands of workers, around 10,000 as a matter of fact. Its a work of monumental proportions no doubt, but the scale of manpower involved is completely different.

La Sagrada Familia depends on interpreting the ideas of the original architect, and I'm quite sure that most of the time is spent debating how to execute the the most minute details.

Even hindu temples are conceived as sculptures rather than buildings. Infact, a lot of temples are carved out of single rocks:

I just came back from Barcelona. I had not visited the temple for a while but the advances are massive in recent times.

The temple is a piece of holy art. But it will be a massive place for worshippers as well. It can hold a choir of a few thousand to start with.

It is vital that some of the buildings around it will be torn down. To start with the gas station that's near...

Besides, the Spanish have nothing to prove, so they are in no hurry.

OTOH, Akshardham makes a big statement - its built to represent the achievements of Indian civilization, they obviously wanted to prove their efficiency as well.

It's a highly complex structure to build. Its forest of columns has to support the central tower which will be much taller and wider than the current ones.

Hi guys:

In México there is a sanctuary of the Virgen Maria and the first stone was put on the year of 1898. This was in that year:



After 102 years in the 2000 the sanctuary was just like in the photo be cause many wars, the goverment, etc. (with doors and altars, you know all things of a church)

Now this is the sanctuary:



after 111 years...

so why so hurry that end the Sagrada Familia?? like some people say in this thread many cathedrals has took hundreds of years to be completed. just be patient. Greetings

This one is by far the most beautiful catholic temple on Earth

Gaudi was a genius!

I'd just like to add that the Hindu temples are built on a time tested "formulas" which are known to every good craftsman there, so although the amount of details may be overwhelming they only take chisels to be made (by which I don't mean to say that the job was easy!).
S.F. on the other hand is a totally original concept which demands a whole organizational hierarchy only to be understood.
Also I assume the money isn't a matter of question when building a Hindu temple, which isn't a case here. There are massive efforts involved to keep the build site funded.

And honestly I don't understand all the fuss about the Sagrada, to me it's just one disharmonious showcase of a building, with a few brilliant light effects in the interior and a bunch of towers to dominate the skyline. More like Gothic melting than Art Nouveau.
It fits well in that horrible psychedelic urban plan of Barcelona.

I think the true talent of Gaudi can only be seen on his roofs, in everything other he would get lost in the adjustment.
