The largest hall along Luray Caverns trail is called the Cathetral. There is no chapel there. Having so many religions in the USA they would be forced to put a hundred chapels. Instead there is the world's largest musical instrument - the Great Stalacpipe Organ in the Cathedral.

The space is many times less than that one in the world's largest Carlsbad Caverns I saw a year before but it's more comfortable size for seeing by human eyes with the ceilings of "only" over 10 stories high filled with towering stone columns and crystal-clear pools.
