The Buddhist monasteries of Southeast Asia appear to cast an irresistible spell over visitors. Buddhist shrines--including Wat Pho in Bangkok, the Shwedagon Pagoda in Yangon, and the Silver Pagoda in Phnom Penh--rank among the absolutely top tourist attractions in their respective countries.
This book provides an informative and attractive guide to the Buddhist statuary, paintings, and other media that so fascinate visitors to mainland Southeast Asia.
It also outlines the historical development of Buddhism and the main elements of Buddhist belief. Ninety original color illustrations beautify and enliven this engaging text. Illustrations include classic postures of the Buddha (mudras), and scenes from the Buddha's life and previous incarnations, as well as ornamental features of Buddhist temple architecture.
