The Temple of all Religions
In 1994, a construction of a by all means unusual architectural structure – the Universal Temple – began in Kazan. It is a unique building that combines features of Catholic, Orthodox, and Buddhist temples, a Mosque, and a Synagogue. The Temple was not designed by its creator Ildar Khanov as a religious center but as a site combining a museum, a concert hall and an exhibition gallery. The Universal Temple is an architectural symbolic symbiosis of religions, civilizations and cultures.
