  1. Nice architecture. The pic shocked me for a second though. I thought it was a rule that religious buildings have to be made of stone, LOL. 🙂

    Seriously though, I think that’s the first time I’ve seen any sort of a “church” of any religion that size that wasn’t stone or at least Stucco walled.


    • I’d say it’s not uncommon in Central Asia. Not far from this place (in the Karakol area) there is a mosque that looks very much like a Chinese temple of the Taoist or Chinese Folk Religion varieties (which are usually wood.) [China is just up the road, and cultural influence can be seen here and there.]

      I suspect it works because of a combination of not too high humidity and the use of some form of naturally rot-resistant timber.
