Bhutan’s Buddhist Architecture – LAURA BLAKE
Bhutan Bokar Tours & Treks arranged two tours for Laura Blake as she worked on her book Bhutan’s Buddhist Architecture, an informative introduction and easy-to-use guide to Bhutan’s temples, monasteries and dzongs.
The book includes brief historical and architectural overviews, a dozen examples of the country’s best-known buildings, and a pictorial glossary of forty Buddhist symbols commonly used in building decoration. Simply written and illustrated with maps, plans, and more than a hundred photographs the book provides an understanding of Bhutan’s striking architectural style and the rich Buddhist heritage from which it emerged.
