No matter your religion, surely you marvel at many of the ecclesiastical structures throughout Indianapolis–especially the historic ones.

This one is a touchstone for many who pick up groceries at what is now a Marsh grocery store.

If this is one of your favorites or you just want to help protect the future of this piece of architectural art, there is an Art auction/ fundraiser TONIGHT 11/16/12 6pm at the Athenaeum to raise money for the roof!

Like an old friend always standing watch over the downtown grocery store parking lot.

This church was built circa 1910 at 317 North New Jersey. Designed by architect Hermann Gaul, who modeled it after the Cathedral in Cologne. What do you think of Gaul’s version/ translation?

    This is an excellent replica of the Cologne cathedral. Reminds me of Venice’s Saint Mark’s cathedral which is a replica of the former church of the Holy Apostles in Istanbul (formerly Constantinople); where when the Ottomans captured Constantinople in 1453, the Greek Orthodox Patriarch relocated from Hagia Sophia Cathedral to the Church of the Holy Apostles when Hagia Sophia was converted into a mosque).
