In this paper terrestrial photogrammetry is analyzed and its applications in architecture presented. Photogrammetry is a technique of representing and measuring 3D objects using data stored on 2D photographs and it has many advantages over traditional methods. We give theoretical background for the methods used in creating 3D models from photographs and then, using the appropriate software, we apply these methods to create 3D models of architectural objects. Using the described photogrammetric methods we constructed detailed 3D models of over 100 sacral objects in Vojvodina built from 18th until the first half of the 20th century. Many of these objects were seriously damaged, some in a critical condition and it was the last moment to record their present state.
