Religious buildings are among the most photogenic architecture you can find... especially in the myriad of choices available to our multicultural society.

No doubt that mosque, temples and other religious and traditional buidlings are more pleasing. A good architectural designs on mosque and temples certainlly takes your feelings out.

Imagine, going to a simple temple where you find a statue made of gold and Imagine going to a very stunning architectural worked temple where you find a statue made of stone................among these two I certainnly feel that you will feel better and comfortable with the state made of stone.

What i think that most of the ancient building which are famous is related to religion only or to the human thoughts or about the things which man couldn't understand at that time.....that's why lots of effort are put to made it .....

Hi people, I live in México in a city where there are many religious temples, and I have to say that it´s not only about the past, about what the human history dosen´t explain their self in the past, it is a question of an architectural image, an urban image, and I have to say that I admire the architecture of your continent and i believe that this are spaces that reflect part of the culture and this architecture identifies us as a society. We must feel proud of the architects of the past and let me tell you that now we have more tools to continue creating, this kind of spaces and others.

Today we have sphosticated machines and tools to ease difficult tasks which our ancestors had manually done decades ago but I still feel that even with these high-technical devices we'll not be able to built what they have done earlier barely with their hands.

What i feel is that religious architecture is the most challenging of all forms of this profession. A temple or a mosque is not just another public place. Its an different realm altogether; something reflecting its own character and the character of the almighty sitting in it.

I don't know much about mosques or chapels but the ancient hindu temples had something very intresting, holy and divine linked to them. Not long back, i got a chance to visit a few temples of Tamil Nadu.

I was there with my friends and as we entered, I felt that the aura of the art and architecture took over us. We were all together and separate at the same time, as if in someone elses territory. I realized it and I could make out the rest of my friends were feeling it too. And this was probably more because of the architecture of the place than the holy god residing in it.

This is what the quality of a space can do to you. It can make you feel strange things, somethings you have never felt before...
