The Rothko Chapel is where religion and art go hand in hand. It was founded by the De Menils who also created the Famous Menil Collection of Houston. This lovely chapel is a must see in sequence with the Menil Collection if it is on your list.

The place has been designed quite simply and elegantly. The lovely skylight on top of the main prayer area bathes the place in glorious sunlight almost throughout the day. The most striking thing to see here is a beautiful structure called the Broken Obelisk which is dedicated to Martin Luther King Junior. The pyramid with an obelisk like structure standing upside down on its narrowest point is an astonishing site indeed.

Be sure to visit this serene sight which is a church with a great difference. The serenity and minimalism of the building designed by Mark Rothko is worth noting.
