The most beautiful temple in Guadalajara Aug 02, 2011
I am not sure why I am reviewing this place until now. I have been to the Templo Expiatorio (Expiation temple) several times, and I go there everytime I have a visitor. This is one of the most wonderful neogothic churches I have seen in Mexico.

The temple was built quite recently, during the 1930s and after the stormy Cristero war. The temple features most of the elements of gothic architecture, like gargoyles, peak curve arcs, stained glass, etc.

Most times I have been there, it's a mass going on, so I haven't been able to take detailed pictures of it, but I promise to add more soon.

You must not miss this place during your visit to GDL.

One of the most beautiful devine architectures in Mexico Jul 10, 2011
Templo Expiatorio del Santísimo Sacramento is one of the beautiful churches I have ever visited, located close to downtown cathedral of Guadalajara, Mexico. Constructed in gothic style, beneath the central place of this church, we can see tombs of the people with names and other details.

I have visited this place today with Carlos, one of the local TBs. We went into the church and spend some quality time observing the construction, sculptures on the walls, Hangings from the dome, Carvings on the pillers and the dome, Glass art and copper work on the main doors.

We also went down through steps to under ground chamber and seen the architect's name in one of the main tombs. I have taken many pictures of this beautiful devine structure.

This is definitively one of the great hot spots of Guadalajara, but it often gets ignored in tourist trips. I enjoy admiring it everytime I go.
