Buddhist architecture has a long history. Following the spread of Buddhism, Buddhist architecture developed from monasteries and stupas in India to myriad forms integrating local cultures.

The architecture category is comprised of four volumes. The 1,467 selected entries with 3,103 colorful pictures display Buddhist architectures of historical and artistic values, such as historical sites, monasteries, stupas, and sutra pillars. The first volume contains an overview that details the history, architectural layout, features, and artistic styles of Buddhist architecture. The appendices in the fourth volume list different forms of halls, stupas, and pagodas.
