Yes, it indeed is another building

Hampi is a UNESCO World Heritage site located in the Northern part of Karnataka. It lies within the ruins of the ancient, prosperous kingdom of Vijayanagar. The ruins at Hampi are a collection of Heritage sites depicting the fine Dravidian style of art and Architecture. The most important heritage monument in this site is the Virupaksha Temple, which continues to be a very important religious centre for the Hindus. There are several other monuments which are a part of this heritage site, Together, they’re collectively known as the ‘Group of Monuments at Hampi’. Some of the other known ones include the Krishna temple complex, Narasimha, Ganesa, Hemakuta group of temples, Achyutaraya temple complex, Vitthala temple complex, Pattabhirama temple complex, Lotus Mahal complex, several puras or bazaars surrounding the temple complex, and also living quarters and residential areas.

The Alexander Nevsky Cathedral was lined up for demolition, as Estonians viewed it as a symbol of Russian oppression, and in the 90s the Estonian Parliament discussed plans to demolish it to make parking spaces. It's still standing today, beautiful, but a symptom of a troubled past. . . . . #icu_architecture #jj_architecture #creative_architecture #arkiromantix #tv_architectural #archimasters #excellent_structure #arquitecturamx #diagonal_symmetry #lookingup_architecture #unlimitedcities #sky_high_architecture #citybestpics #agameoftones #tallinn #illgrammers #thecreative #shotaward #seemycity #createcommune #citylimitless #heatercentral #guardiancities #visitestonia #bestofbaltics #visittallinn #eesti24 #vscoestonia #happyinestonia
