Spirituality is a very complex topic to discuss; this is due to the fact that it is not tangible and is subject to people’s views and opinions. Despite this, architecture when handled properly has an ability of freezing and resonating the sacred, Godliness and spirituality in a space. The goal of this study is to acquire recommendations for design strategies approaches for the design of places of worship that are rich in experiences for the people who use them and then finally be able to give guidelines on how to develop a place of worship that reflects the whole essence of spirituality in its sense of user experience. The study will enable designers, planners, clergy and pastors to understand what is required to create places of worship that enhance spiritual encounters in relation to their context.
