This Glasgow gallery celebrates the city’s great diversity.

In a city that has become famous for its rich religious mix, St Mungo’s is a great place to go one stage further and educate yourself about the world’s major religions. Outstanding displays and figurines from Buddhism and Hinduism, including a celebrated Shiva statue, and a view of the Glasgow Cathedral and the nearby Necropolis are enough to provide divine inspiration for even the most sceptical of visitors.

Don’t forget to visit the Zen garden outside.

The Provand’s Lordship, the oldest house in the city, is across the road, and is also worth a visit.
