Unusual Churches: Ancient, Contemporary, and Strange

"20 Unusual Churches (Part II)"
Village Of Joy (January 6, 2009)

"Long time no see, my brothers and sisters! A lot of you guys were asking for a part II of Unusual Churches , so here it is. Most extraordinary, strange, odd, you name it, churches of our planet. Look at those spectacular churches built on the tip of the mountain, carved out of stone or built deep inside underground and tell me that there is no god!"

"P.S.: this list wouldn't have come out without...."

There's a short description with each photo. Some, like the xxxxxx, are traditional designs. Others, like Device to Root Out Evil (Calgary, AB, Canada), aren't. Actually, DtROE isn't a church: it's a bit of contemporary sculpture shaped like a church.

Others, like Trendsetters Church (Phoenix, AZ, USA), are functional churches with - odd - designs.

The post includes an example of the old dug-in churches of Ethiopia: Church of St. George(Lalibela, Ethiopia).

My favorite for today is Church in a Hill(Luxembourg).
That church in the photo is Saint-Michel d'Aiguilhe chapel (Le Puy-en-Velay, France). I know: it looks like one of those miniature sculptures, but it's real ("Chapel of St Michael d'Aiguilhe" Sacred Destinations).
