Rising from the fog was this glorious construction. Immensely awe inspiring we had to stop and see. The architects and builders sure demonstrate their faith. Spiritually moved to sit and pray. Beautiful and refreshes the soul.

Worth a visit to admire the workmanship that went into creating such an AMAZING structure, I don't practice any religion however this Cathedral is a must visit to appreciate the workmanship and material that was used.
