A bright white temple as if carved from ice. Statues in candlelit caves. Massive red monastery walls in the midst of majestic mountains. In this beautiful book of travel photography, Christoph Mohr presents the most sacred places of Buddhism. Across Myanmar, Thailand, Vietnam, China, Tibet, Ladakh, Zanskar, and other Asian regions, Mohr shows Buddhist temples, monasteries, sacred mountains, and illuminates the life of the historical Buddha. The images are accompanied by texts from Oliver Fülling, sharing the basics of Buddhism and everyday Buddhist practice and rituals.
