The best domed building in the world is the Pantheon, to say the least because it was the first dome ever built by mankind and the prototype for all the following ones. But out of these I'd say Hagia Sofia.

Because of my huge respect for both Ancient Rome and Eastern Roman Empire(Byzantine) and the respect and admiration to the beauties ancient Greeks and Romans built together i will nominate the GREAT Pantheon in Rome by Apollodorus of Damascus and the GREAT Haghia Sofia built in back then Constantinople.

The Hagia Sophia and Blu mosque are both stunning but I have to vote for the Taj as it effected me quite deeply when I saw it. I haven't been fortunate enough to visite Istanbul yet though so maybe my opinion would change if I saw it in person. St. Peter's Basilica did nothing for me when I saw it, but it is nice.
