The Golden Lands: Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Myanmar, Thailand and Vietnam - Architecture of the Buddhist World. This is a groundbreaking survey of the Buddhist architecture of Southeast Asia, abundantly illustrated with new color photography and 3-D renderings. It is the first volume in a projected six-volume series that will take a new multidisciplinary approach in showing how Buddhist thought and ritual have interacted with local traditions across the Asian continent to produce masterpieces of religious architecture. The Golden Lands is devoted to Southeast Asia. Following a general introduction to the early history of Buddhism and its most characteristic architectural forms (the stupa, the temple, and the monastery), Lall examines the Buddhist architecture of Myanmar, Vietnam, Indonesia, Cambodia, Thailand, and Laos in turn. For each country, he provides both a historical overview and case studies of noteworthy structures.
