My Google Maps

Here's a listing of all the live Google maps I've created for The Temple Guy (so far).

How to Use the Map Controls:
  • Use + /- or mouse wheel to zoom in and out.
  • Click to close the hand to move around.
  • (The two functions above are accomplished with two fingers on mobile devices.)
  • Click the square-with-arrow on the left to open or close the index of sites. (Works better if you zoom in first.)
  • Click the three-dot thingy to share the map with others.
  • Click the "four corners" in the upper right to go to the full map

Four big pilgrimages, lots of small ones, and a very long walk


There's a strange little quirk when we consult Google Maps in China. The Map version and Satellite versions are not in sync; that is, when you change from Map to Satellite, you'll have to cast about for the proper location, usually within a half-mile (or a kilometer), but it could be in any direction, depending on how that particular area is (un)synced. Throughout The Temple Guy, I use the Map coordinates; those who wish to see a "bird's-eye view" of the sites will have to compensate. (As a consolation prize, I'll usually put a screenshot of the Satellite view in the main article about each temple, along with the "inaccurate" Satellite coordinates. Copyright be damned!)
