Leaving the Chùa Cau Dông (Eastern Gate Pagoda) with a last view at the dragon-crowned tower. This is a Buddhist temple in the Old Town of Hanoi (Vietnam). It used to be situated near the eastern wall of Thang Long Citadel, from which Hanoi later emerged. Close to the temple was a bridge crossing the river. . But today the temple is surrounded by the chaos of Hàng Duòng Street, one of the characteristic streets of the Old Town: full of shops and buzzing with people passing by on motorbikes and bicycles, or walking by with merchandise on their schoulders or in a barrow. The spider webs of electricity cables crossing the street almost block the sight of the temple. This elaborately ornate temple is said to be nearly a thousand years old, dating from the time of the Ly dynasty, with some of its statues and stelae dating back 400 years. In Chua Cau Dong, Buddha is worshipped according to the Tao Dong line, which is one of the five sects of Vietnamese Buddhism. There are nearly 60 Buddha statues in the temple, apart from other sculptures and ornamentations. Everywhere are flowers, food and other offerings. . . #be_one_architecture #monumental_world #traveling_arte #addicted_to_facades #ig_monuments #timeless_unlimited #ig_monumentalworld #loves_monuments #fiftyshades_of_history #total_medieval #medievalworld #total_monuments #world_heritages_ #ig_discoveries #srs_buildings #tv_buildings #loves_united_architecture #archi.focus_on #worldwide_heritage #classic_arch #be_one_city #total_arquitectura #fever_old_stones #tv_asia #topasiaphoto #super_asia_channel #total_asia #chuacaudong #hanoi #vietnam

With this picture of the impressive west facade of the Minster in York (England), I am leaving this beautiful building. Time to move on! . The York Minster is the second largest Gothic cathedral of Northern Europe, after the Dom in Cologne (Germany) - pictures of which I will publish later. But first York. . The present building was begun in about 1230 and completed in 1472. Among the many remarkable things is the floorplan, which is cruciform rather than the Latin cross which is more common in mainland Europe. This means that the east end of the church is equal in length to the nave. As a result the crossing tower really is situated in the geometric middle of the church. The north and south transepts were the first parts of the new church to be built in the early 13thcentury, in the so-called Early English style. Then the octagonal chapter house, linked to the north transept, was constructed in the early Decorated style. At the end of the thirteenth century, construction of the widest Gothic nave in England started, also in the Decorated Gothic style. This includes the eastern facade with its two impressive towers, as shown here. . Then, at the end of the fourteenth century, the east end was added in the Perpendicular Gothic style. It is closed off not by an apse, but by a façade with the Great East Window, the largest expanse of medieval stained glass in the world. Finally, in the 15th century the crossing tower was added in the Perpendicular style. . . #yorkminster #igrejasemfoco #igrejaspelomundo #monumental_world #traveling_arte #tv_churchandgraves #total_sacro #fa_sacral #be_one_sacro #ig_monuments #timeless_unlimited #ig_monumentalworld #thehub_church #world_bestangels #loves_monuments #fiftyshades_of_history #churchesandcastles #total_medieval #medievalworld #total_monuments #world_heritages_ #ig_discoveries #church_photogroup #photosofbritain #britainshiddengems #lovegreatbritain #addicted_to_facades #ars_sacra #r_a_d_members #welcometochurches

Less spectacular than the ceiling, but I also loved the tiles of the Chapter Houuse of the Minster in York (England). This was where the day to day business of the church was run. Construction was begun in about 1260 in the Gothic Decorated style which was then in vogue. The ribbed wooden roof is truly a masterpiece of medieval architecture, with colourfully painted panels and a profusion of gilded bosses. Unlike other chapter houses, there is no central column to support the roof vaulting. .
