Well regardless of who's god is worshipped there, it's a magnificent piece of architecture.
Personally, being a Buddhist, I accept all religions as being a different view of the same one truth. At the heart of all of them is the basic premise: be good to one another. It's the human interpreters of religion that sometimes get it all messed up.
