For millennia, faith has pushed people to build grand, extravagant structures to honor and worship their gods, including churches, synagogues, temples, mosques, and more. But you don’t need to be a believer to be awed by the beauty of religious buildings around the world. Case in point: the stunning Imam Ali Mosque.
