    Weird, but software was specially rebellious yesterday.
    Anyway, this link should work:https://www.google.com/search?q=Grea...w=1077&bih=458

    That is your Church, I think, in the NL. Here you have the main Temple of São Paulo:

    Sanchi... incredible ancient bas relief and other artwork.

    Yes, the beautiful Temple in S.P. (its structure reminds me of my local temple)... a wonderful history I hadn't read before. I recall that one of our General Authorities, Elder Ulisses Soares, is from S.P. . As a convert late in life I've only attended two temples (though many times): receiving my endowments at the Oakland, California Temple in 2005, and attending the dedication at the Sacramento, California Temple (my current local temple) in 2006. I visited the Seattle, Washington Temple just after my Mother passed on, but it was closed at the time.

    Ishtar Gate... exquisite artwork dating to a period of time with events important, coincidentally, to my faith:
    King Nebuchadnezzar II reigned 604–562 BCE, the peak of the Neo-Babylonian Empire. He is known as the biblical conqueror who captured Jerusalem.
    .

    There are several Mormon Temples in São Paulo, but I think this is the oldest one.

    These old buildings are all wonderful in their grandiose conception and artistic details:

    I love FLW's buildings/homes; interesting article... did not know of this one (and only 2 hours and 24 minutes away or so, 132 miles/212.433 km, from me if I was able to take the optimum route ! (which I can't myself))

    National Gallery of Modern Art, primarily @ Jaipur House, Rajpath, New Delhi, India... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nation..._of_Modern_Art ; an interesting contrast to India's past.
