A visual journey through Thailand’s 42 most historic wats
The Buddhist Temples of Thailand explores the Buddhist temple’s historical position in Thai culture and the dynamic role it continues to play in everyday life. The kingdom’s best-known sites and rare gems, such as Wat Phra Kaew in Bangkok and Wat Phumin in Nan, are brought to life through expert text and more than 200 commissioned photographs.
Joe Cummings first came to Thailand in 1977 and two years later begin researching Southeast Asian art history for a master's degree at the University of California at Berkeley. He has written more than 30 guidebooks on countries in Asia and North America, and authored several books on Buddhist archaeology, Thai design and other related topics, including Buddhist Stupas in Asia, Lanna Renaissance, Burmese Design and Architecture and Chiang Mai Style. The late Dan White was a British photographer who spent two decades specialising in South and South East Asia from his base in Bangkok. He did pioneering work on India, particularly on the complex world of Hindu ascetics and also in Cambodia celebrating the end of war. Publications include: The Times, Der Speigel, Marie Claire, The Observer and The South China Morning Post.
