From the extraordinary Machu Picchu set high in the Andes to Uluru in the central Australian desert, and from Britain's Glastonbury Tor to Saint Catherine's Monastery beneath Mount Sinai, this book is a homage to those sites around the world that have inspired faith, devotion and mystical experiences. Understand the spiritual significance of major buildings such as Borobudur in Java and Chartres Cathedral in France, learn about the sacred traditions associated with each monument and unlock the symbolic meaning of incredible landscapes and natural landforms. Featuring reconstructions, location maps and plans of the sites as they would have appeared at their height, along with key pilgrimage routes and advice on when to visit them, The Sacred Sites Bible is an essential guide to these ancient wonders.
