It might be a temple, a church, a commemorative monument, a wayside shrine or a landscape feature that is saturated in the ambiance of ancient sacred traditions.

Semacam bangga, pas buka bukunya, setelah halaman judul, dua halaman memuat foto Borobudur :) *dari 99 tempat lain dari berbagai penjuru dunia yang dibahas di buku ini*

This is a beautiful book, full of places I would love to visit. In particular, the city of Petra, where I have wanted to go for a long time now, and Wistman's Wood in Devon, England, which I didn't know existed until I read about it here. The Baha'i Lotus Temple is also in the book. It is the only Baha'i temple featured, but not the only one I would like to visit. Many of them are so beautiful! Also, I personally would add the Baha'i Gardens on Mount Carmel in Haifa to the places featured in ...more

I want to go to all the places... Including the ones that don't allow women and the ones that don't allow whatever religion I'm not, and especially those because they say "no you can't" and that makes it all the more special and beautiful. I imagine It would be easiest to make it to the ones in England,

well done book of places in the world that because of the remoteness or spiritual qualities the place harbors due to ancient dwellers. There are beautiful pictures of each place and a short explanation of why it was included.

Livro que apresenta os principais locais sagrados no mundo que constituem turismo espiritual e religioso. Esta dividido por continentes e apresenta um texto muito simples e curto em algumas vezes, o que não é tão legal. No geral interessante e de fácil leitura.

While some of the locations are a bit meh, the book does offer fodder for future travel planning! Was disappointed to notice that I have only been to around 10 on this list.
