Select images of Octagonal churche buildings. An octagonal church has an octagonal (eight-sided polygon) architectural plan. This category also includes shapes that are not regular octagons (i.e., not necessarily equiangular or equilateral), as well as buildings with extensions (choir, porch, narthex) that depart from the purely octagonal shape.
