More Asian Architecture Than You Can Handle

A Daily Dose continues to come correct with the interesting resources.

I'm sure the PRADE readers, all 10 of you, will enjoy perusing this site, a photographic survey of Asian Historcial Architecture. The site is easy to navigate and basically features a ton of photos and written commentary for just about every important Asian building ever constructed. From ancient to modern, Chinese to Afghan - this site has you covered.

It is fantastic to see the diversity of Asian architecture - and the photos are pretty spectacular in most cases. Here are a couple that caught my eye - but I encourage everyone to wander the site and discover your own favorites.

Xuankong Si Temple ("The Hanging Monastery") in Hunyuan, China

Shanghai Bund in Shanghai, China

Preah Ko Temple in Angkor, Cambodia

Kiyomizudera Temple in Kyoto, Japan
