A spiritual journey around the world.
Holy Places and spiritual sites are found throughout the world. All of them have in common a mysterious drawing power that has held humankind in its spell since the beginnings of time. In addition to the holy sites of the great religions, there are countless spiritual places of indigenous peoples and vanished cultures.
This book presents one thousand such special places, including some of the great Christian cathedrals in Europe; pilgrim paths and places of pilgrimage; Hindu, Buddhist and Shinto temples in Asia; the most important mosques of the Islamic world; natural sanctuaries in Africa, America and Australia, prehistoric cult sites and modern sanctuaries. The book invites readers to embark on a spiritual journey through history and the cultures of the world.
