Western parliaments and government buildings often were built in classical style borrowing elements from Greek antiquity and Roman time. That also is true of many universities and railway stations built in the 19th century. These architectural gems deserve to be preserved for as long as possible.

Ditto for many palaces and temples in the Far East: Borobodor, Angkor Wat, the Forbidden City in Beijing, the royal palace in Tokyo... all very impressive structures!
