Nice quiz. And I really like the new little gimmick where the number of correct guesses flashes up when it rises.

Enjoyed that quiz, a toughie but a goodie. One problem (but it gave me another point so maybe I shouldn't mind) is that some attributions give the answer away - is there a way that just the credit is given, without also saying what the picture is of?

Also some of the links seems to be broken. For example the first picture's attribution link is just a link of this quiz itself. The one with the gold dome on the third row also has the same issue

@Jerry928. The attributions don't reveal the answer unless you click the link. For technical reasons this is the best and only way to do attributions.

I think there are at least two places of worship here that are now museums. Ayasofia and St Basil's.

The Japanese and South American one... had no idea on those...

Agreed on the South American one, and the first one on the bottom row threw me totally, but I'm a Brit, it may be easier for people from that country. The Japanese one I managed to work out, somehow.

I managed to get both, but I think an actual closer-up photo of the one on the bottom would be better than a distance drawing.

What a neat photo of Kyoto. Would this be a sort tunnel leading to a Shinto temple or shrine? Beautiful shot

Temples usually are Buddist I believe. Shrines are Shinto

This is at Fushimi Inari, a shintō shrine.

A typical Shinto shrine would have only one (or maybe a few) of those orange gates. Having hundreds (maybe thousands?) arranged in tunnel-like structures is what makes Fushimi Inari famous.

Been to 9 of these places. Attended Easter Mass at Notre Dame and the Vatican. Circumabulated the Kabaa. Went inside the Dome of the Rock and saw the rock. You should have put in a temple from India, Myanmar, Thailand or Cambodia. Lots to choose from. There are some impressive mosques in the UAE and Iraq, too. A bit Eurocentric.

I've been to four, but I've hit every one in cities I've actually been to. I was also a little surprised not to see anything from the Buddhist/Hindu sphere of the world. Spent much of my remaining time randomly guessing cities in India and SE Asia (though, in retrospect, all the ones I hadn't gotten by that point had either fairly obvious Christian symbols or Western architecture).

I was surprised about that, too. I've only been to one, but my children have been to several of these.

Is access to Mecca and the Dome of the Rock still restricted to Muslims?

In Saudi Arabia there are police checkpoints at regular intervals on every highway. On the roads leading to Mecca and Medina there are many of them close together. They stop every car and check your ID. IDs and visas issued by Saudi Arabia have your religion printed on them. You can also go to one of the many Islamic centers in the country and convert to Islam; they will give you a laminate stating that you have spoken the shahada.

In Jerusalem there are armed guards outside the entrance to the Temple Mount and also in front of the Dome of the Rock and the Al Aqsa Mosque. They will ask you to recite the Al-Fatiha from memory (the first chapter of the Quran). But if you tell them that you are a stupid American who just recently converted and is struggling to learn Arabic, they might let you in with some documentation of your conversion.

I still find it strange to see some of these colored white. I think of most of the European ones looking like the one in Cologne, even though it's been years since they were cleaned.
