Saying thank-you is a beautiful thing. Check out these incredible shrines, temples, churches, mosques, and altars built for the purpose of giving thanks.
Giving thanks is a beautiful thing. It’s also a very powerful thing. It humbles us and lifts us all at once. It spreads love and joy. It creates a spiritual connection between the giver and the receiver.
Places of worship are monuments to giving thanks as much as they are to prayer. Their beauty is designed to convey the sentiment of “thank-you” and honor. Churches, synagogues, mosques, and other structures all have thanks as part of their architecture and design. Some are designated as UNESCO World Heritage Sites. And regardless of your own religious or spiritual beliefs, you can feel the power of “thank-you” when you see the artistry.
