Such a beautiful place. It's like lace on a wedding dress, delicate layers of detail.

Both photos are beautiful but I especially like the top one, looking through the delicate tracery to more elaborate stonework beyond.

I can never tire of this wonderful building! Am I wrong or the stone has been cleaned recently?

There are some monasteries in the Far East.
However, there is not it which it is such minute, and beautiful.
