Description
 
This book has now been in use for a century, consulted and cherished by literate pilgrims from all over the Tibetan world. It also gained the attention of foreign pioneers of Tibetan studies in their search for non-liturgical literature. Akester has revisited the guide, dividing the 200 plus entries in the guide to 18 chapters in the three main regions, each beginning with a translation of the relevant section of the guide and then going through it place by place. In each case the location is pinpointed, the history and folklore summarised in varying degrees of detail, and the buildings described as they were before 1959. This updated volume is for modern scholars, researchers, and those interested in the spiritual history of Tibet.
