As major architectural elements, domes,spires and minarets are seen as dominant features of the skylines of some of the great cities of the world. They can be hemispherical in shape, paraboloids of revolution, onion-shape domes... in Florence, Istanbul, London, Moscow, Paris, Rome, St. Petersburg, Venice and Washington, DC... But they can also serve as the defining iconic edifice, such as the Taj Mahal in Agra. I welcome others to contribute.
