Pilgrimage to Perfume Pagoda

2005 International Photography Exhibition
“Pilgrimage to Perfume Pagoda"
Location: Perfume Pagoda, Hanoi, Vietnam
Photographer: Lauren Kalman
Category: Places
Award: Honorable Mention

In the photographer's words: "This is the starting point of an hour long boat ride to the foot of the mountain, on top of which is a complex of pagodas and shrines carved into the terrain. Once the base of the Huong Son Mountain is reached it is an hour long hike up slippery and steep terrain, alongside hundreds of other pilgrims to reach the Buddist Shrine."
