The Universal Temple: A Place Of Worshiping 16 Religions Together

When the whole world is facing the wrath and imbalance of humanity created by region differences among us, a special temple in Russian city of Kazan has stood up to be an example of social and religious unity. Famously known as the "Universal Temple", it's a place to worship as much as 16 religions together. Established by Ildar Khanov in 1992, the site is not actually a chapel in the traditional sense but instead a center meant to stand as a symbol of religious unity.The structure served as a cultural center and residence of Khanov and his assistance which was continuously under construction till Khanov eventually died in 2013.

The exterior of the temple looks like something in between of Disneyland small world display with Greek Orthodox dome and a Russian minaret combined all together. There are influences culled from Jewish synagogues and Islamic Mosques, and a number of spires and bells.

Khanov said that eventually the structure will have 16 cupolas, corresponding to the 16 major world religions including few past religions that are no longer practiced.

Even Today the temple is still not fully open to public but the assistance of Khanov stay there and continuously working in the construction of the site.


Ildar Khanov had a dream of a world which is free from religion differences and a world where people should live freely as one community as human beings.We as people living on this planet should learn from the example laid by departed Ildar Khanov and his legendary thought about equality in diversity .
