πŸ’’ CFFC – Churches, Cathedrals and Temples πŸ’’

This week Cee has chosen City structures for the fun photo challenge. Mine are churches, cathedrals and temples from around the world.

Silver Pagoda, Buddhist Temple, Phnom Penh, Cambodia
St. Patrick’s Cathedral, New York, USA

All of these structures are hundreds of years old and I often look and wonder at the sheer size of these buildings. How did builders manage without all the modern equipment we now have and just think about the fact that most of these structures are still standing.

Thanks Cee for another great challenge and the chance for me to showcase some photos from my archives.

  1. Super selection – a few I recognised such as Hanoi, others I’m yet to see for myself. Like you I’m always amazed at the construction and artistic skills demonstrated in these ancient buildings! One query though – the Phnom Penh one looks like the Royal Palace from what I recall. Is it a temple in the palace grounds or just built in the same style?

  2. Wow, such beautiful structures. Next time you travel, Ali, let me know if there’s room in your suitcase. I’ve never seen any rooftops like some of the ones you’ve shared.
