Ancient Luang Prabang PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Ancient Luang Prabang free pdf High in the mist-shrouded mountains of northern Laos, cut through by the Mekong river, is Luang Prabang, a remote town of glittering Buddhist temples and barefoot monks. Luang Prabang is a treasure trove of sacred art dating from the 17th century. 36 important Buddhist temples, elaborately carved and exquisitely frescoed and gilded are described and illustrated. In addition, the author discusses the architectural contributions of the French colonisers. Today, the combination of traditional Lao architecture and elegant colonial buildings have made Luang Prabang one of the most beautiful and best preserved towns in Southeast Asia, well deserving of its designation as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
