Churches are the basic symbol of sanctity especially for the Christians. Here we are about to mention some unusual churches built deep down the Earth. Nestling the ultimate power of peace and solace these architectural marvels are a must visit. Get hold of some of the best underground churches of the world.

This church is located in the Bochnia salt mine in Poland that happens to be the oldest of its kind. Blessed Kinga Chapel is situated at Wazyn Chamber in the mine and is a construction totally done with salt. Established in 1747, this church consists pulpit sculpted in salt, different salt figures and even some salt altars. It is amazing to think of a church made in the heart of a salt mine that was active for more than 750 years. However, the mine is now basically used as a tourist spot as salt extraction has been lessened.

If the former is not enough, take the St. Kinga?s Chapel in Wieliczka salt mine of Poland. We can't help wondering on the fact that it is located 101 meter underground and was created from a block of salt back in 1896! The interior of the Chapel is decorated with various structures carved in salt which took more than a 100 years for formation. This is evident from the chandeliers that grace the church and are made from salt blocks.

This church built in the shape of a cross on a massive rock is found in the Australian outback Coober Pedy. It derived its name from the Roman Catacombs that were used to bury the dead and meet in times of persecution. Coober Pedy, otherwise known as the Underground Town houses five deep earth churches.
