"The stupa ("stupa" is Sanskrit for heap) is an important form of Buddhist architecture though it predates Buddhism. It is generally considered to be a sepulchral monument-a place of burial or a receptacle for religious objects."

Here are some photos I took during my vacation in Vietnam, where the Native Khmer people (Cambodian race) have around over 400 pagodas, each pagoda has many to dozen of stupa surrounded the main temple.
