I noticed that we have a lot of references to places - not locations but actual famous buildings.  Should we not have these in the Places thread (rather than Misc.?)

For example, I'd like to do a short description of the Guild Hall of Tunes in Bardavos.  We also need paragraphs on each of the major temples located in various cities around Santharia (like the "Great Hall of Grothar in Voldar" kind of thing),  or the statue of Thar in Santhalos, or the Mithril Bridge......  

Some of you authors might have ready-made descriptions of certain towns or buildings in that town which would fit with a little tinkering, for example.  These descriptions then could be made into link answers, so that when someone clicks on the name they get the description, location, and brief history of the building.  

Suggested Format for Building Descriptions

Name of Building (full title, any nicknames or other names)

Location of Building ( area of city, city name, province, continent)

Function of Building (what's it used for?  who works there?  why was it built in the first place?  are there different functions that take place?  is it single- or multi-purpose?)

Description (exterior appearance, height, size - in Santharian measurements of distance or area - material constructed from,  architectural features, interior divisions and rooms, additions, areas of use, etc.)

History (brief list of dates or sequence - when built by whom, how long functioning, any important changes in its use, any vital events that happened on the premises or in the area,  any renovations or rebuildings, etc.)
