This post is unjustified, this is one of the coolest things I have seen. They probably have one of the best and most orignal and creative places of religion in the world and feel proud.
I totally agree with Mr. Peceimer. These sculptures of ice are incredibly difficult to create, let alone those made to be permanent. It is also amazing that people can actually go to worship and value this great feat of architecture. This is pure awesomess!
I'm sorry, but I believed it's spelled padunkle.
