The western culture has a bit similar but different approach to Buddhism and Buddha statues to that of the eastern culture. Though intersection of Buddhism with the western civilization have remained occasional for thousands of years, the European colonization of Buddhist countries in Asia during the 19th century introduced the detailed knowledge and information of Buddhism to the large number of people in the west. #Buddha #Buddhism #East #West http://www.buddha-statues.info

Red Square, Bucket List, St Basil, Moscow Russia, Basil S Cathedral, Places I D, Beautiful Place, Saint Basil
st basil’s cathedral, moscow, russia. if only moscow wasn't one of the world's most expensive cities...
Saint Basil’s Cathedral, Moscow Photograph by Izzet Keribar/IML Image Group Legend has it that St. Basil’s Cathedral’s beauty cost its architect his eyes. The Moscow monument was built between 1555 and 1561 by Ivan the Terrible to commemorate a victory over the Mongols, and he’s said to have blinded the architect so that he couldn’t create a rival masterpiece. The Russian St. Basil the Blessed lies interred within the church.
Inside Moscow’s Red Square, Saint Basil’s Cathedral has tall towers and multi-colored spirals. The cathedral was built from 1555–1561 under orders from Ivan the Terrible and legend has it that Ivan blinded them afterwards so they could never design anything better. However, 25 years later (4 years after Ivan’s death) they were employed again to add an extension to the cathedral. This is an unlikely feat for blind architects, unless they had some particularly clever seeing-eye-dogs.
Russia’s most populous city was called out yet again by readers, despite glowing reviews of Red Square, the Kremlin, and Saint Basil’s Cathedral. “Unfriendly people, but cultural relics are what you are going for,” a reader admitted. Perhaps it's the language barrier that's the source of the perceived unfriendliness? One reader noted that “not many people speak any language but Russian." In any case, it hasn’t stopped tourists from flocking to its iconic sites in droves.Last year's world ...
