Churches

After the advent of Christianity and its subsequent unprecedented rapid growth  all over the World, “The Churches” were constructed by the followers of Jesus Christ according to their traditions, financial capacity and the architecture that was prevalent in the region at that very time. These Churches are not only the  pieces of Architecture, all these Churches are the pieces of History,  written over various geographical locations of the planet earth by dedicated followers, showing their respect and reverence towards  one of the greatest religion in this universe . Here are some of the churches that I have covered in my various posts, I hope it would be a useful and learning experience:-
