Readers may recall that in the first volume furnished the objective of the excavation, the description of the site and its environs, -:us notices, historical survey and religious background and full details of the excavated Stupa-area and Monastery I with their structural remains, monolithic stupas and stone sculptures unearthed.

Once again I thank all the members of the team of the Archaeological Survey who toiled with me in the field at the time of the excavation and the village-people who helped us in every possible way. I am particularly beholden to Shri Kalachand Das, Photographer ‘a mired), Shri Ranjit Datta Gupta, Photo Officer (now retired), Shri Raj Kumar — Senior Photographer, Shri Kamal Kumar Biswas, Surveyor, Shri Sanat Kumar - Serveyor, Shri Lalit Kumar Jam, Drawing Officer and Shri Saktipada Chatterjee, Artist, who prepared illustrations for the publication.

I am also thankful to Shri S. Ganesha Rao, Draftsman of the Survey, for conversion of measurements into metric system in both the volumes and to Shri Brij Bhushan Datta for typing out the entire manuscript.

I record my appreciation to Shri Chhering Dorje, Deputy Superintending Archaeologist, for assistance with the proof-reading in the initial stage. -‘ thanks are also due to Shri S. R. Varma, Administrative Officer of the Publication of the Archaeological Survey, who helped me in various ways while I was seeing this volume through the Press.

Thanks to the cooperation of the Press, this volume could be brought out within two years from the publication of the first. I take this opportunity to express my grateful thanks to Shri N. K. Gossain of Messrs N. K. Gossain S Co. Private Ltd., Calcutta, for the keen • ken by him at even stage of printing.

My daughter Dr. Mallar Ghosh assisted me in proof-reading all through.
