Photo Friday #22 – Holy Places

The theme today on #FriFotos is Holy Places and I have no shortage of photos. Although I’m not a religious person I love visiting religious sites when we travel to marvel at the art and architecture and to learn what the church, mosque, temple, synagogue, etc. means to the people who hold it dear.

There was no chance of being able to limit myself to only one photograph so here are some of my favourite holy places from around the world.
