This photograph shows the Russian Orthodox Sts. Peter and Paul Church in the Perth suburb of Bayswater. The church has the typical orthodox/Byzantine architectural features of a dome (symbolising the heavens) on top of a square church building (symbolising the earth). The domes are often known as onion domes, and are usually gold. The Bayswater church also features external Eastern Orthodox crosses, on top of the dome and affixed to the walls of the building. Mosaics of St Peter and St Paul are featured above the arched entrance. The Sts. Peter and Paul Church is part of the diocese of Australia and New Zealand, as was founded in 1950.
