I applaud this thread

these pictures are really so beautiful. It think it really speaks to the fact that man reserves his creative skills for his Creator....it drives home the idea that man is a spiritual being. I always enjoy viewing religious masterpieces...

having said that, can someone tell me the significance of the dome seen so often in Islamic constuction?

I also applaud this thread.
Some lagre mosques, i believe, are designed to signify the power and glory of god. The outside of these mosques is nothing compared to the inside which have had millions of $$s woth of decor anf finishings. When you enter them, they're supposed to make you feel like you are powerless compared to Allah.
Anyways most people don't know that. Theyre to busy calling muslims terrorists to recognize that Islam has changed the face of our planet archetucturaly, culturaly, economicaly, and every single aspect of civilization today.

Well..that does not make any different right? . Yang Dipertuan Agong will reside in Putrajaya..hence unofficially it will be the place to live replacing Istana Negara. Not replacing Istana Negara mean the current one will be left like that, empty and only be use for protocal ceremony.
