Cambridge: King's College Chapel

King's College is one of the wealthiest colleges at Cambridge University. The buildings here are also very sublime, particularly the chapel. Henry VI planned for the dimensions and the construction commenced in 1446.

The interior of the chapel is even more sublime than the exterior. The fan vaulting was added by Henry VIII, the successor of Henry VI. It looks intricate yet beautiful.

The two large windows at the east and west ends are adorned with stained glass.

There are also 12 smaller windows on each side of the chapel, each with beautifully crafted stained glass as well.

Even the smaller chapel within the chapel is intricately decorated with stained glass windows. I love stained glass windows. They are just so adorning and colourful.
