Believe It or Not, this beautiful cathedral not only lies 443 ft. (135 m) underground, it is made entirely out of salt, including the chandeliers.

The ornate chandelier was made from rock salt that was dissolved and then reconstituted with the impurities taken out to give it the appearance of glass.
