Entry Description

Religious syncretism can be found in a lot of places around the world, blending beliefs like Christianity with Voodoo in Haiti, Hinduism with Sufism in India, Buddhism with Shamanism in China. An example of the latter can be seen here, with pictures shot during Shaman’s celebrations in villages around Repkong, China, an Amdo people area on the Greater Tibetan Plateau.
