Since time immemorial, there have been religious places for humans to meditate on the origin and cause of the universe. They have signaled the sense of surprise, relief and submission. The form, architecture and location of these places have made them distinguishable and granted them a sacred position as if they have magically come down from the sky since long ago. Through the design of this templeI have aimed at, on the one hand erecting a monumental building and, on the other hand conveying a sense of surprise. While the comprehensive form of the temple is so legible to easily sympathize with it is beautifully intricate so that the viewer fails to simply construct its entire image. It exhibits various faces from different points of views.
