Seven Wonders of the Buddhist World
Arts & Culture, Human Interest - 1x56

Buddhism, one of the most ancient belief systems in the world, is practiced by nearly 350 million people today. Presented by Bettany Hughes, this program visits seven of the most famous ancient and modern Buddhist locations in the world, including Bodh Gaya in India, the Bodanath Stupa in Nepal, the Temple of The Tooth in Sri Lanka, Wat Pho Temple in Thailand, Angkor Wat in Cambodia, the Giant Buddha in Hong Kong, and the Hsi Lai Temple in Los Angeles, California, in the United States. At each location, Bettany meets with Buddhists who explain the different concepts that form the core of Buddhist belief, giving insight to the long and rich history of Buddhism.
