Pictures of Theravada South East Asia

Theravada is the form of Buddhism closest to the original teachings of Buddha. It promotes an introverted, serene and spiritual approach to life. The countries of South-East Asia influenced by Theravada Buddhism have a distinctive culture and unique religious architecture of soaring and gilded temples. They are home to some of the most gentle and friendly people anywhere. This gallery illustrates in 400 images the people, culture, and sights of Myanmar (Burma), Thailand, Laos, and Cambodia.
