    Sorry, I'm being a cheeky monkey. It's Borobudur in Java, massive Buddhist temple.

    And the one from Clitterhouse Park is actually in Lake Bratan, Bali.

    more Chicago in re: Eastern European cathedrals

    (none of them are particularly gorgeous individually, but collectively, I dunno, they got this character about them...)

    the Poles

    St. Stanislaus Kostka, somewhere off the Kennedy


    the Ukrainians (in, of course, Ukrainian Village)

    St. Volodmyr & Olha


    there's loads of them really, there's a whole mess of Polish cathedrals off the Kennedy Expressway

    Only joking, pictures are still good.

    "Sorry, I'm being a cheeky monkey. It's Borobudur in Java, massive Buddhist temple.

    I'm pretty sure he knew that really.
    Good stuff from all. Enjoy your take especially Padraig 'cause of the local knowledge.

    out on my bike today & I thought of this thread. again I don't know if it compares to something really stunning like the Blue Mosque or what have you, but nonetheless.

    St. Hilary, corner of Bryn Mawr & California in Albany Park, taken with a cell phone

    thinking about borrowing a digital camera one of these Sundays and taking a tour of all these cathedrals. which I never would've done w/o this thread on places of worship, so big h/t to Rich for that.

    Went to this place in Wimbledon yesterday, pretty fucking cool I thought. Weird how it's just tucked away in a back street amongst loads of posh gated houses. Very peaceful with no-one speaking and all the ducks in the pond asleep.

    St. Bartholemews Church in Brighton is amazing. Looks all fucked up weird and out of proportion, apparently that's because it's built to the supposed size of Noahs Ark. Looks lovely anyway...
