Religious Temples

Religious variety.

Although the population of Venezuela is mostly Catholic, the capital city has many other venues for followers of other religions. On Amador Bendayan Boulevard, next to Caobos Park, you'll find the Tiferet Israel synagogue, inaugurated in 1963 and a meeting place of the Venezuelan Jewish community. Nearby is the Sheikh Ibrahim mosque, the second biggest in Latin America, easily recognized for its minarets. Perhaps the most unusual monument of all, due to its pecular shapes, is the Rumanian orthodox church of St. Constantine and St. Helen, one of only two temples of this kind built outside Rumania (where there are another 13). The building was inaugurated in 1999, after many Rumanian artisans imported for the task completed its construction without the use of a single nail or other metallic object.
