Sacred Places in China is a nearly 100-year old text by Carl F. Kupfer, a Christian Missionary. His tour of various sacred locations in China is quite interesting, and mostly comprehensive. It would be fascinating to find out which of these structures survive today -- there have been several revolutions in China which may well have changed the character, at least, of these ancient places.
Liberally illustrated with photos, the text is short enough to read in a long evening, and the writing style, while not neutral, does tend to treat the subject with some reverence and historical awe.
