One of the major attractions at Stanford University campus is the Memorial Church. It has elaborate structure adorned with magnificent mosaics depicting biblical scenes.
The church's facade is imposing with the image of Christ and His disciples. To me, this church is in itself a work of art nurtured by profound spirituality of its benefactors.
