The Temple of the Christ the Saviour, Moscow. Russia

The Temple of the Christ the Saviour, Moscow. Initially was built with people's donations (1831-1883, architect K. Ton), demolished in 1931 by Stalin. Restored in 1990's - it was planned to finance the building with donations again but it was impossible to raise such amount during the poor years of Russian reforms; so at the end of the day it was basically sponsored by the Moscow government.
