World Most Beautiful Temples
The Holy Spirit Catholic Church Szentlelek templom Hungary
The most beautiful church Ive visited is also one of the most unique that Ive seen.The Holy Spirit Catholic Church (Szentlelek templom) is found in Paks, a small town in Hungary on the banks of the Danube.The church is made completely out of wood by Hungarian organic architect Imre Makovecz.The spires, included the expected cross, but also has the unusual shapes of a sun, and a crescent moon.The latter, a symbol of Islam, caused quite a stir in the city when they were unveiled.I especially enjoy the sense of flow and movement you get from the overall design of the church.A visit inside to marvel at the beautiful wooden designs is by appointment only.
[singular noun + 's] : my father[s]car We sometimes just add an apostrophe (') to a singular noun ending in -s: Socrates' ideas. But's is more common: Charles's wife.
[plural noun + '] : my parent[s] house
[irregular plural + 's] : the children [s] room
We can add's to a whole phrase: the man next door's wife.
The ending 's is pronounced just like a plural ending . The apostrophe (') in a form like parents' does not change the pronunciation at all. Possessives are not usually used together with other determiners.
The car that is John's is John's car, not the John's car.
