Temppeliaukio Church

Temppeliaukion Kirkko is a church that was designed by architects and brothers Timo and Tuomo Suomalainen and opened in 1969. Plans for the Temppeliaukio began as early as the 1930s, when a plot of land was selected for the building and a competition for the design was held. It is built directly into solid rock, and so is also known as the Church of the Rock and Rock Church.
