Buildings are as we know are normal structures like apartments, villas or huts. However there are buildings around the world that catch the eye and are not normal at all. Here is a list of some of the weirdest.

1.Kansas city Library Missouri – It is literally books. Yes I mean it , the building looks like a stack of neatly arranged books from outside. It is regarded as America’s most beautiful library. The interior is even more amazing than the exterior. However it is the exterior which catches the eye.

2. Low impact wood house, Wales – It is straight from the Hobbit movie. Built with care it has all we see in the movies. Its structure brings back the memories of rural England of the 1800. Visibly it is awesome from outside as well inside. It is basic natural dwelling the thing we cannot dream today.

Strange Religious Buildings: agree or not?

You may ask yourself who decides whether a building and its structure are strange or not. That is right, no one is to judge and we all have different tastes and points of view.

In this post, I talk about two of the most strange religious buildings in the world…so feel free to judge them with your own words.

Metéora – Greece

This Greek Orthodox monastery is one of the most complex and strange religious buildings ever seen. Its name makes reference to the word “meteorite”, like “suspended or flying in the sky”. It is built on natural sandstone rock pillars and after Mount Athos, it is one of the largest construction in Greece.

Ki – India

Also known and spelled as Kye, Ki or Kee, this strange monastery is located in India, and it is a Tibetan Buddhist monastery situated on top of a hill, around 4000 metres above sea level. It is well known for being a training center for religious matters for Lamas.

If after having read about them and seen some pictures made by thousands of photographers all around the world, you think these buildings are indeed quite strange, no worries, there are still hundreds of them out there…and you can find them on your own!
