From ancient structures like the pyramids to the more flashy and pristine buildings we’re more used to seeing in the modern day, architecture has the ability to inspire awe as well as functionality. Across the centuries, buildings have changed in a huge variety of ways due to fashion and trends. Here are some of the most impressive feats of architecture across the world.
The Taj Mahal
One of the most iconic buildings in the history of the world, The Taj Mahal is a mausoleum built in memory of Mughal emperor Shah Jahan’s favourite wife Mumtaz Mahal. Located in Agra, it has been declared a ‘new wonder of the world’, is made entirely of marble with inlaid jewels and is perfectly symmetrical from every angle.
The Pyramids of Giza
The Pyramids of Giza have been the subject of many theories about how they’re constructed because they inspire so much awe. Many people still believe there was even UFO involvement! Built between 2590 and 2560 BC, the structures are so accurate for the time they were built that they remain a source of wonder and the monument remained the tallest man-made structure in the world for nearly 4,000 years.
The Lotus Temple
Located in New Delhi, the Lotus Temple is a house of worship that is open to anyone regardless of their religious beliefs and is built in the shape of a flower. With 27 free-standing petals that are clad in marble, the structure has become a popular tourist destination in the Indian capital and has won a number of awards included an award for excellence in religious art and architecture.
