Overview

"The substantial coffee table book is a fascinating series of narratives accompanied by excellent photographs, all depicting more religious, spiritual and sacred sites than any one person could possibly visit but to be able to see and read about them in one place is a joyous journey of discovery." —Denver Post

This inspirational book showcases 500 of the world's most powerful and spiritual places—and guides modern-day travelers to and around them. From prehistoric burial chambers to modern monuments and sanctuaries, each site's history, lore, and appeal is evocatively detailed.

Nearly 300 locator maps point out pilgrimage routes, temples, mountains, churches, and holy places. This beautiful book answers the call of the spiritual traveler while also appealing to the many readers interested in sites of unique cultural heritage.
