About the Book

This Book is the first of its kind which gives complete information on the history, art & architecture of more than 250 Buddhist sites and shrines in India. The presentation is state-wise, covering 25 modern states, in alphabetical order, from Andhra Pradesh to West Bengal. The most sacred shrines, sanctified by the Buddha, are in Bihar and Uttar Pradesh. Three other states where the Best Buddhist heritage has survived are - Andhra Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh and Maharashtra. And the best gompas, monasteries in the high Himalayan Valleys where Buddhism has been a living faith through the ages, are in Arunachal Pradesh, Himachal Pradesh, Ladakh (Kashmir) and Sikkim.

To make this volume complete in all respectes, five additional notes have been added. These are on - The Edicts of Asoka (3rd century BC); Buddhist monasteries seen by Hiuen Tsang, the Chinese pilgrim, in the 7th century AD; Sacred Relics of the Buddha; Buddhist Remains in Pakistan, and Buddhist Sites in Bangla Desh. All this information naturally makes this volume a very useful Reference Book on the Buddhist Sites and Shrines in Ancient India.

Testimonials
Fantastic! Thank You for amazing service and fast replies!
Sonia, Sweden
I’ve started receiving many of the books I’ve ordered and every single one of them (thus far) has been fantastic - both the books themselves, and the execution of the shipping. Safe to say I’ll be ordering many more books from your website :)

Probir, UAE
I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
