PBS | 10:00 pm

This new three-part weekly series takes viewers on a journey to some of the greatest spiritual buildings and places of worship in the world, exploring the scale, ingenuity and faith that each embodies. In the miniseries premiere, "House of the Divine," a man at Angkor Wat in Cambodia, who believes the temples are home to his ancestral spirits, risks his life to save them from the encroaching jungle. At al-Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem, a young Muslim paramedic battles his own hunger and exhaustion to help other fasting worshipers during Ramadan.
