Available in Stock
In Hindu mythology, the Himalayas have always been known as ‘the abode of the gods’. Below these mountains, the Kathmandu valley is rich in holy sites, where animism and shamanism have long coexisted with Buddhism and Hinduism. Illustrated with more than 100 colour photographs, this volume explores these ‘power places’ – focal points of divine energy – from simple caves to magnificent temples, in the order followed by pilgrims on the three main routes through the old kingdoms of Nepal.
