Description
In the environs of Kathmandu, the ancient traditions of goddess worship, animism and shamanism have for centuries co-existed with the high cultures of Buddhism and Hinduism, both orthodox and tantric, to create a religious culture of rich diversity, vigour and complexity. The power places of the valley range from simple unhewn rocks and boulders revered since ancient times, to impressive pagoda temples replete with wood, bronze and stone sculptures. These sacred places have been the goal of devout pilgrims from different spiritual traditions through the ages. This splendid book of the Kathmandu Valley unites magnificent colour plates and scholarly text.
