Help me find interesting churches

I'm looking for significant, interesting, or unusual churches (for architectural, cultural and/or religious reasons) from around the world. More thoughts inside.

My mom is looking to make a list of significant churches from around the world, like the Russian Church of the Savior on Blood
, and Spanish missions in California
. She'd like to make a list of the "top 100" churches, and has ~50 currently, though I don't have that list.
For full disclosure, she's looking to write a book on this, though it may never leave the stage of "interesting areas for further reading," as she keeps getting side-tracked in details and history. Her interest is in Christian churches, but I'd be interested in knowing more about other religious sites, too.
If this does get to be a proper book, I'll keep people updated and I'll make sure proper credits and thanks are in place. If it falls shy of that, I might make her a website, to share what she (and others) have found and written about.
