    If it was written exactly like that when you saw it, it was wrong. It should not have a question mark.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    So, it means "How the most beautiful building came into existence". Can this expression be used for other things as well?

    It is not a complete sentence and is meant to be a title, so with or without a question mark or period doesn't really matter.
    I am not a teacher or a native speaker.

    A title does not need a full stop, but it does need a question mark if it is a question. The one we are talking about is not a question, and so a question mark is incorrect.

    You've been told more than once that when you read something on the internet that you decide to ask us about, you must provide a link to it – as tzfujimino helpfully did.

    You could at least have told us what building the item was about. I thought it might be La Sagrada Familia, but I haven't seen enough of the world's beautiful buildings to form an opinion.

    Well, the Sydney Opera House is pretty attractive.

    Tufguy, have you forgotten how to form a question?
