Temppeliaukio

This is Temppeliaukio, The Church in the Rock, built, or more accurately, excavated from a huge chunk of granite, in 1969. All that can be seen from the street is the saucer-like roof, but the interior is very organic and spiritual. Below is the roof from the inside, all woven copper strands, the main sanctuary and one of the many beautiful walls showing the veining of the rock.
