Anyway, after visiting a few cities in Germany, we set foot on Helsinki, Finland. We decided to do the hop-on, hop-off bus and we found it to be very convenient. Also, Helsinki is an easy and friendly city to explore. I found the language so hard to understand and the signs/spellings really threw me off.
I like how this building looks like a dome.
We arrived early at the temple and it was still closed. This is the entrance.
While waiting for the temple to open, we sat and relaxed at this garden located at the entrance.
When we finally entered the temple, I was filled with awe.
The church's walls are made of rocks. This is the altar - so simple yet the temple has a certain commanding presence that it is a place of worship.
I love how the rays of the sun shines freely inside the church.
According to the brochure, this Lutheran church was blasted out of solid rock.
The roof of the temple.
I couldn't get a good photo of how the temple looks like from atop, so here are three postcards I bought at a nearby shop.
