What are the most beautiful temples in the World?
Elnura Kuldaeva stashed this in Most beautiful temples in the World
I was strolling along Red Square and captured the beauty of the Temple of Vasilyi Blajennyi in Moscow, Russia. It got me thinking: what are the other most beautiful temples out there?
Those are all spectacular, but my favorite temple of all time -- the Haeinsa -- is very plain on the outside. Its beauty is on the inside, because it was designed to be a repository for a complete set of woodblock prints of the buddhist scripture called the Tripitaka Koreana. The temple is a marvel of engineering with subtle adjustments to keep the air flow and temperature perfect throughout the centuries -- despite war, earthquake, fire, and flood.
Alhambera in Granada is one of my favorite most spiritual places on earth, though it's more a palace than a temple
but the mosque at Cordoba is mind blowing. no photo can capture the endlessness of it.
Thank you for sharing your thoughts Eric, Joyce and Christina! Now I have an even bigger list of places to visit :)
Every time I travel, I can't stop admiring human creative capacities. It's so inspiring!
I truly love this convo. Thank you Elnura!
