 BASIC BUDDHISM

Buddhist Temples & Buildings

Buddhists do not worship but practice the Dharma by bowing, chanting, making offerings and meditating in front of Buddha images at home or in temples. They sit on cushions on the floor or kneel. Out of respect, they do not point their feet at a Buddha image or at the sangha. 

There are four kinds of Buddhist structures: monasteries, temples, pagodas, and stupas.  Take a look at the pictures below.
