Foreword by Graham Hancock, author of #1 Bestseller, Fingerprints of the Gods.
National Geographic photographer and anthropologist, MARTIN GRAY is recognized throughout the world as the premier expert in the study of sacred sites, holy places and pilgrimage traditions.
During a thirty-year period he traveled extensively in more than one hundred and forty countries to study and photograph many hundreds of sacred places of prehistoric, historic and contemporary cultures. Martin is an expert in the subjects of ancient religion, sacred geography, archaeoastronomy and ecopsychology.
Spanning 23 Asian countries, comprising hundreds of sacred sites, pictures, interactive maps, and image galleries, Sacred Asia is the most comprehensive work of its kind ever assembled.
Sacred Asia is ideal for travel planning, higher education curricula, photographers, and spiritual intellectuals.
What a contribution to humanity
Martin spent over 30 years chronicling all these sacred sites, and without a doubt as traveled to and wrote more about the spiritual underpinnings of our planet. I especially liked the chapters on India, Japan and South Korea. Could have been more on China, however…just to be honest.
The pictures are largely spectacular. Definitely a book to take your time reading, especially if you are making plans for a pilgrimage to one of the some 20+ countries in Asia that Martin covers.
