IS RELIGION AND ARCHITECTURE INTERRELATED ?

Sacred architecture (also known as religious architecture) is a religious architectural practice concerned with the design and construction of places of worship and/or sacred or intentional space, such as churches, mosques, stupas, synagogues, and temples.
   The history of architecture is concerned more with religious buildings than with any other type, because in most past cultures the universal appeal of religion made the church or temple the most expressive, the most permanent, and the most influential building in any community.

One thing that hasn’t faltered throughout history is that places of worship are always enthralling and immersive sights to see. No matter their size or grandeur, it’s the purpose these places serve that adds an element of intrigue unmatched by other architectural sites.

Another side to the compelling nature of sacred places is when they’ve taken a step into modernity and look like an otherworldly, futuristic version of something you know is a tale as old as time. I mean, we so closely associate these structures with the old-fashioned and traditional that, when presented with a modern incarnation, awe increases thousand times.

Take a look at the article portraying these sacred spaces having their own beauty.
