Description


Buddhist Temples of Thailand follows the sweep of empire through the country's different temple-building eras and regions.

Through profiling 42 of the most prominent wats it explores Buddhism's development throughout the kingdom and underpins the belief system's dynamic interplay with contemporary life and its everyday role in Thailand's vibrant culture. Beyond highlighting the most significant complexes, murals and Buddha images, the book explores the daily rituals, regular festivals, and key architectural elements of this diverse religious form.

This expanded edition features two additional temples that were not included in the first edition.
