Photoshelter: UNESCO World Heritage Sites

Photoshelter is a cooperative project making available digital photos via the Internet. It has made available a number of photos of World Heritage sites in Asia that are worth your interest.
Asia has many UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Luang Prabang, Hoi An and Penang are special for the blend of architecture that has been preserved there. My Son, the Great Wall of China, the Forbidden City and Angkor Wat are all well known for their history, archeological discoveries and ruins. Toshogu Shrine in Nikko is special for its unique design, as is Wat Phra Kaew in Bangkok - one of the largest royal compounds in Asia. Japan is particularly rich in these protected sites, especially Kyoto.
