Yes, I realise that now. It was discounted when it came to adding up the nominations.

WOW!! Amritsar's Golden Temple is unbelievably gorgeous!! I believe it is the Sikhs' holiest shrine, but what is its significance.

The Meenakshi Temple is gorgeous too.

I don't think this is a subject we should be having a contest on, because each place is the most beautiful to different people. To me, anyone who devotes his life's work to creating such beautiful places that we have seen here and elsewhere and is devoted to loving his fellow man has a beautiful piece of all these buildings in his soul.

I have to say Haram Shareef in Mecca. I mean being the centre of worship for 1.5 billion people has to count for something. And its not just like the vatican which is the most important in its religion. The 1.5 billion people actually have to face towards it while praying.

And also the Notre Dame Basilica in Montreal is another of my favourites. The exterior isn't all that fantastic... but the interior is breath-taking:
