Contest goal:

A place of worship is a specially designed structure or consecrated space where individuals or a group of people such as a congregation come to perform acts of devotion, veneration, or religious study. A building constructed or used for this purpose is sometimes called a house of worship. Temples, churches, and mosques are examples of structures created for worship. A monastery, particularly for Buddhists, may serve both to house those belonging to religious orders and as a place of worship for visitors. Natural or topographical features may also serve as places of worship, and are considered holy or sacrosanct in some religions; the rituals associated with the Ganges river are an example in Hinduism.

Exterior and interior are both allowed.

Although not as old nor imposing as its neighboring Hagia Sofia, the Blue Mosque, being an active worship centre, conveys with such a beautiful interior all the peace and tranquility with which all religions should be practiced. (5 years and 345 days ago)
