Churches of the Eastern Cape. This is the Dutch Reformed Church and can be found in Church Street in the town of Cradock, and was built in 1868. The church architecture was loosely based on the St. Martin’s in the Field Church, in Trafalgar Square. The Mother Church is rich with history, with the christening of statesman Paul Kruger in 1826, and ironically its roof was used as a look-out point for British soldiers during the Anglo-boer war. The church makes a powerful architectural statement within the small town of Cradock. The corner stone was laid in 1832 and it inaugurated in 1842. The beautiful wooden ceiling and stinkwood pulpit are visually impressive, harkening back to a time when such craftsmanship was employed in churches. #churches #churchesofinstagram #churchesoftheworld #oldchurches #menseselense #southafrica #architecture #architecturephotography #easterncape #easterncapetourism #travel #travelphotography #tourism #visitsouthafrica #lovessouthafrica #bnw #bnwphotography #bnw_captures #bnw_greatshots #bnw_planet

Reposted from @churchcrawlersa - Maria Ratchitz Mission - In 1882 a group of Trappist Missionaries under Father Franz Pfanner arrived in the Colony of Natal to establish a mission. Pfanner bought a farm near Durban and named it Marianhill. The Trappists, being an agricultural order, intended to train Zulu families living on the farm in agriculture, animal husbandry, bricklaying and other skills. Expansion from the base of Marianhill was rapid, several "daughter" houses, including Maria Ratschitz, on the farm Boschkloof in the Biggarsberg, were established. . #churchcrawling #churchesoftheworld #churchcrawl #churchcrawlersa #southafricanchurches #religiousarchitecture #mariaratchitz #southafricanchurches #trappist #monastery #kwazulunatal #missionstation
We came to Puerto Vallarta on our honeymoon 12 years ago, so it has been enjoyable to revisit — this time with three fresh-eyed children in tow — many of the landmarks we (vaguely) remember, such as this classic church downtown.
A unique little church in the village of Bethelsdorp, Nelson Mandela Bay: St Rita’s Catholic Church: this church was built by its parishioners from two adjoining houses donated by the Forlee family. It served as a place of worship for many Catholics who were forcibly moved to this area after the Group Areas Act was passed, and was lovingly served by the famous Fr Geoff Goodwin who also painted the colorful murals (and included himself in the paintings as well!). The church is now a Mass centre for the nearby parish of St Joseph the Worker @stjosephschatty #churchcrawling #churchesoftheworld #southafricanchurches #religiousarchitecture #pecatholic #stritas #bethelsdorp #churchcrawlersa #churchcrawlersanonymous
The Hofmeyer NG Kerk. Founded in 1873, the town was initially named Maraisburg. To avoid confusion with the Gauteng area of Maraisburg it was renamed Hofmeyr in 1911 in honour of Jan Hendrik Hofmeyr (Onze Jan), a campaigner for the equal treatment of Afrikaans and English and a prominent figure in the Eerste Taalbeweging. The Hofmeyr Skull, belonging to a 36,000 year old anatomically modern human, was found in 1952 in the dry wash of the Vlekpoort River just outside Hofmeyr. . #churchcrawling #churchesoftheworld #southafricanchurches #religiousarchitecture #churchcrawlersa #easterncape #hofmeyer #ngkerk #easterncapechurches #karootown #karoo
St Patrick’s Roman Catholic Cathedral, Kokstad. The cornerstone was laid on 27 February 1924 by Adalbero Fleischer, then Apostolic Vicar of Marianhill, and construction completed later that year. Initially staffed by the Marianhill Fathers, in 1935, they were succeeded by the Franciscans, who staffed the church until 2000. . . #churchcrawling #churchesoftheworld #southafricanchurches #religiousarchitecture #churchcrawlersa #churchcrawl #kokstad #sacatholic

Basilica of St. Peter and St. Paul, Prague, Czech Republic 🇨🇿 This region of Vyšehrad is indeed very old. Legend says it’s the oldest seat of Czech Royals. It’s foundations lie in the 11th century. And this church you see has a shared history with this town. The Basilica of St. Peter and St. Paul was founded in the 11th century too. It was a Gothic building. The current structure is a Neo-Gothic built between 1887-1903. It’s got 2 spires and is a wonderful spot in Prague....as you can see ⚜️⚜️⚜️⚜️⚜️⚜️ Photograph: @mareksaroch.cz

NG Kerk, Zastron. Zastron is a small agricultural town in the Free State province of South Africa, 30 km from the border of Lesotho. It is situated at the foot of Aasvoëlberg (Vulture Mountain), named for the rare Cape vultures attracted by a feeding project a short distance out of town. A curious rock formation in the mountain, Die Oog (The Eye), has been adopted as the town's unofficial emblem. . #churchcrawling #churchesoftheworld #churchcrawlersa #southafricanchurches #religiousarchitecture #zastron #freestate #ngkerk @freestatesecret
Church of Our Lady before Tyn is one of the most photographed landmarks in all Prague. Don’t get me wrong, it’s beautiful day or night. However, I’m drawn to it the most at night. I mean, goodness. It’s stunning. ⠀ ⠀ For my Disney fans, it’s rumored that this church was the inspiration for the Sleeping Beauty Castle. Also, fun fact: The two towers are uneven and one is deemed “Adam” and the other is “Eve”. ⠀ ⠀ Sorry I’ve been so behind on posting lately. I’ve been enjoying our travels, visits from family, and overall, summer. I’ll try my best to get better, but not this week. I’ll be in Boston until Sunday, so I’ll pick back up the following week. ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #tynchurch #tynchurchprague #churchofourlady #churchofourladybeforetyn #praguechurch #churches #instachurch #churchesofinstagram #churchesoftheworld #cityviews #cityview #beautifulcity #bestcityviews #mybestcityshots #amazingcity #prague #lovelycity #citiesoftheworld #praguestagram #inlovewiththiscity #iloveprague #igprague #praguelife #praguelove #visitprague #praha #beautifulcityview #favoritecity #cityscape #czechrepublic
The NG Kerk is so often the centre of the town in small South African towns. Often the towns are quite run down, while the church remains well cared for. This is the NG Kerk in Wepener, in the Free State along the R26. . #churchcrawling #churchesoftheworld #churchcrawl #churchcrawlersa #southafricanchurches #religiousarchitecture #ngkerk #wepener #freestate @freestatesecret

St Joseph’s Catholic Church, Bloemfontein. This church has a stark beauty but was neglected for a long time. Slowly, efforts by the Fathers of the Oratory have paid off to restoring this little place of worship . #churchcrawling #churchesoftheworld #churchcrawl #churchcrawlersa #southafricanchurches #religiousarchitecture #bloemfontein #churchesofbloemfontein #sacatholic #freestate
Saint Louis en I'îlle (4) is always spectacular, but finding the choir filled with sunbeams is awe inspiring. Enlarge the photo to enjoy the details of the stained glass, such as Saint Louis in the lower glass and the relics of the Passion depicted in the decoration. The first chapel was built here between 1613 and 1676. It was restored and embellished by the city of Paris in 1817, after being used as a book depository during the Revolution. The church is easy to find in the blocks just behind Notre Dame. When visiting Paris, try to hear one of the many wonderful concerts held in the church. #catholichurch #churchesofparis #stainedglass #paris #altar #saintlouis #churchesoftheworld
Храм Христа Спасителя (Церковь Рождества Христова). Год постройки между 1905 и 1910г. Church of the Nativity of Christ in the village Sedеlnitsy. Уникальный храм в селе Седельницы. Храм был построен с использованием строительных новшеств тех лет - устроен калорифер в подвале (по всему зданию внутри стен проходили каналы, с выходом в виде маленьких окошек, через которые прогонялся тёплый воздух, который и отапливал не только сами стены, но воздух храма). Использовались железобетонные перекрытия, оконные рамы были не только железные и застеклённые, но и рама была двойной и с форточками. Для купола был использован так же нестандартный кирпич - с пустыми полостями внутри, для меньшего веса крыши. Однако, главный купол это не спасло и несколько лет назад он всё-таки обрушился. Храм запирался на могучие двойные чугунные двери, за которыми стояли ещё и деревянные. Роспись была с использованием обильного золочения фонов фресок, нимбов и орнаментации. До сих пор осталась позолота на крестах. * * #fa_sacral #graveyard_fanatics #churchesandcastles #churchesoftheworld #etoe_2 #grime_lords ##urbex_disciple #urbex_underground #graveyards_dead #sombrexplorer #fotorussia #mavicair #abandoned_seekers_ #decay_nation #urbex_kings #abandonedplaces #abandoned_seekers #abandonedafterdark #urbex_kings #urbex_supreme #trip #lastplaces #king_abandoned #abandoned_addiction #the_relics #renegade_dark #allabandoned #ig_urbex #церковь #ruins #itsabandoned

Baptist Church. Not a statement of religious beliefs; merely an appreciation for history and architecture. Churches have always been a source of my fondness for the combination of those two things. ___ ___ #baptistchurch #church #churches #churchesofmd #churcharchitecture #churchphotography #churchesofinstagram #churchesoftheworld #oldchurches #religion #history #architecture #architecturephotography #architectural #buildings #architecturelovers #architecturephoto #archi_focus_on #archilife #architecturelover #maryland #marylandphotographer #photography
I’m beginning to think of expanding things as far as my Catholic social media presence goes. So I want to ask you all a pretty bold question. . Why is it that you follow my page? . What is it about what I post that you like? . If you can please be as honest as possible, because it’ll help me understand how I should plan my other ventures going forward. Or maybe I should quit while I’m ahead and just stick to Instagram. 😜 . . You’ve all been truly wonderful people here on Instagram, making a normally messy platform something really uplifting and helpful with all of your incredible comments and encouragements! . . Looking forward to what you have to say! . . Keep fighting, keep the Faith and God Love you! . . . #traditionalCatholic #instaCatholic #CatholicsofInstagram #Catholic #Cattolica #chiesacattolica #Catholics #CatholicFaith #RomanCatholic #Catholicism #RomanCatholicChurch #CatholicChurch #proudCatholic #Catholiclife #Catholicworld #church #churches #churchesoftheworld #churchesofinstagram #churcharchitecture #CatholicConnect #Catholicphotography #Catholicblogger #realmenpray #faithjourney #faithblogger #faithblog #Katolik

This is a splendid church dating back to the 17th century, which I met while entering the woods surrounding the hotel where I am staying. The picture was taken with my smartphone.

With short words and without trying to be super fancy (even if I want my vocabulary doesn’t allow me lol ) but This cathedral is beyond beautiful - Catedral de Santa Maria de Burgos. I’m not a religious person but I do love churches and all kind of temples for their amazing architecture and engineering. Can’t wait to go back and take more photos of it 📸#catedraldesantamaria #burgos #churchesoftheworld #blackandwhite #olympusomdem10
