Book Reviews

The Asian Review of Books

“Lall’s visually delightful showcase of Buddhist architecture succeeds in portraying the physical result of the faith’s tolerant, cosmopolitan nature, and the dynamism with which so many cultures have made it their own.”

The reviewer, “Story of Angkor” author Jame DiBiasio also blogged about the book here

The Star, Malaysia

“it doesn’t matter if you are a professional architect or a practising Buddhist, Architecture Of The Buddhist World: The Golden Lands is a visual treat for everyone – it’s just a bonus that you’ll also learn some history.”


Biblio [http://biblio-india.org/]

“With abundant analytic drawings – following the norms of architectural practice- [Lall] presents new insights to understand Buddhist architecture, thus making a compelling case for an architect to write the history of architecture. The information has also been collated and presented in an attractive and accessible format, so the publication can  be considered both a coffee-table book and a shcholarly treatise.”
