Thats one way to look at it. No doubt that architecture has an effect on world view. As well as written religions vs oral religions.NATURE & RELIGION:
"When one loses the deep intimate relationship with nature, then temples, mosques and churches become important."
J Krishnamurti: The Little Book on Living
What more can be added to his view above?
But another way to look at it is that with the development of the temple (synagogue), the Hebrews were free to worship anywhere instead of favoring one place over another with altars. Arguably that is a more expansive view of nature then confining it to a certain place, rock, mountain, etc etc...
Appreciation and interaction of the natural world isnt necessarily exclusive with the built worship environment.
