Owner description: A special mix of quartz and white cement was developed for the intricate ornamentation on the nine-sided, domed structure.

When visiting Northwestern University or anywhere on the North Shore, stop in to learn about this unusual religion. Simple interior does not match intricate exterior. Beautiful grounds.

You can drop in and take a tour. Cool place. Great grounds. Right on the lake. Pretty to walk around the neighborhood and near the Chicago River.

The most spiritual place around enveloping you in understated elegance and allowing you time for thoughtful meditation. Gardens are beautiful also and the individuals who work there are warm and very helpful.
