The Temppeliaukio church is an absolute delight to see in Helsinki. The whole church was carved out of a rock face which makes it utterly remarkable. Visiting the church is like entering a gorgeous cave dedicated to worship.
There are slits in the dome through which rays of light shine through illuminating the entire church. In fact the dome itself is worth seeing with its attractive spiral designs and rocky walks. The temple unsurprisingly attracts a lot of tourists as a result.
The altar is simple enough but when the rays of light fall on the main praying station it is a real sight to be beheld. Certainly a must visit due to its stunning design, be sure to visit this church in the day to see these amazing sights. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Helsinki itinerary 2 days.

It is a really good place to visit if you are a music lover you will have different shows and they are really amazing. Ask them when they happen. I should say I was lucky enough to see that. The guy played climate change music and was amazing. It as his own composition. The whole church is completely carved out of the rock. The entrance fee is 3€ for adults and free for children. You can buy blueberry sweets inside. Overall I gave 4 because it was just a good church carved out of rock but still its only for who does prayer I think.
Amazing building! Fantastic Finnish architecture! I would recommend to visit it in a sunny day around 1pm to get some amazing light and shadows.
Fantastic piece of architecture and it was lovely to see. €3 entry but it’s not a big building, it doesn’t take much time to have a look around! There’s a small gift shop there too. I’d recommend seeing this church - partly because there wasn’t a whole lot else to do in Helsinki - but it was beautiful.
It's a very special building, and impressive too. The builders excavated a small rock hill and formed a big bowl, then reinforced concrete strips were built to support the dome roof, there is no supporting column inside the church, the walls are actually natural stone.
This church is a very unique one. It's constructed within rocks and covered with a very contemporary round roof with enough glass to keep it lit with day light. As it's Scandinavian country the light is not an issue during summer and autumn but to keep place lit in winters it's go enough artificial lights and candles. Mostly it's filled with tourists and timings are 9 am to 18:30 last entrance at 18:00 . There is a massive organ which they use during services. There is also a church garden and cafe.
