United States Capitol:
This significant and architecturally stunning building is the home of the United States Congress. It is a place where laws are written by lawmakers of the nation and over the centuries Capitol has housed meeting chambers of the senates and house of representatives.
As a Art lover, I was captivated by impressive designs of the building than the congress meets and history about the law making. Most striking feature about the Capitol is the stunning interiors, paintings, white painted cast iron Dome and 19.6 feet bronze Statue of Freedom at the top.
