Temppeliaukio Church Jun 24, 2012
Temppeliaukio Church is a Lutheran Church in Helsinki. It is a quite modest looking building, seen from the outside. Maybe I hadn't noticed it at all, if it wouldn't have been for the crowd of tourists standing outside. This church is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Helsinki, and half a million people visit it annually!.

At once when I got inside I got the feeling of,, Wow!! The walls are built into the rock and the interior is bathed in natural light, entering through the glazed dome!

When I visited the church, there was a woman, playing piano. Later I read on internet that this church is frequently used as a concert venue, due to its excellent acoustics.

The Church is designed by the architect brothers Timo and Tuomo Suomalainen. The church was first opened 1969.
The entrance. The green copper dom…
Natural light is entering throught…

Nice light and shadowing inside. The exposed rough and irregular stone makes for an excellent sound reflector in all directions and to accommodate a wide range of frequencies too, which accounts for the excellent acoustics. Nice review!
