I'm not accustomed to christian places of worship being called temples. Regardless, it's quite the grand entrance!

Massive, closed doors like this put me off a bit. You may not enter. As a person with little respect for authority I usually find an entrance like this annoying.

Jack said...

This is pristine, as if the doors were painted yesterday and the masons just put their chisels down. It feels a bit cool, but it is certainly great workmanship.

Very classical looking doorway.

Nice, there's a coldness to this yet a softness too.

Classic doorway Ciel, I was trying to figure out if they were real bolt hinges or just for effect.

Sobriete par dessus tout.

Je ne voudrais pas dire de bêtise mais il me semble qu'il n'y ait pas de temple à Cergy, du moins n'y en avait-il pas il y a dix ans lorsqu'une amie était obligée d'aller à St Germain en Laye. Nous n'avons pas de pagode non plus...

Awesome doorway! I like the color of the door itself and the decorations above. Your protestant church is in a much better shape than ours!

Simply beautiful!

Another beautiful doorway with fantastic details. :)

I really like the corbel.

Darn Calvinists are everywhere! :-)

Nice entry to their "temple," though!

There IS a lot of granite and marble in your city.

Tanya said...

I kinda like how the bible is opened above the door.
