WATCH: Holy places of SA
From synagogues to churches to mosques to temples, South Africa is a multi-faith country, and the buildings where these religions are practised tell their stories through beautiful architecture and the congregations that fill them.
Some may no longer be used for their original purpose, but it doesn't take away their historical significance.
One cathedral became a base for the anti-Apartheid movement, a Joburg mosque is the biggest in the Southern Hemisphere and a Northern Cape synagogue became a museum about the Namaqualand.
Whether you're religious or not, you can't deny some of the beauty and spirit that is embodied by these holy places.
