SANCHI
SANCHI
Description
About the Book:

The Buddhist monuments at Sanchi were built over a period of 1400 years, from the 3rd century BC to the 12th century AD. Apart from the impressive stupas, this important site - visited by thousands of Buddhist pilgrims each year - includes magnificent carved gateways, a famed Ashokan pillar, and various monasteries and temples.

The book begins with a succinct overview of Sanchi's historical background, also tracing the life and works of the Buddha and the evolution of his religion. The author then takes the reader on a tour of the site, his erudite commentary highlighting the architectural and artistic significance of various features of the monuments. This detailed description is brought to life using numerous plans, maps and photographs, making the book invaluable to all visitors to Sanchi

Written by a leading expert in Indian archaeological history, this accessible and readable book will be welcomed by archaeologists and art historians, as well as general readers and informed tourists interested in India's most famous Buddhist monuments.

I’m very interesting in history, art and culture of India and I’m studing his civilization; so I’ve visited Rajasthan, Gujarat, Tamil Nadu and Kerala in theese years. I’m a draftwoman , so I like collect works of extraordinary arts and crafts of villages, that must be protected and helped. In a short time I’ll buy some others folk painting, as Madhubani , Kalamkari and – if it’s possible – Phad. In the meanwhile, I’m very happy to have in my home a work of your great artist. Namaste, Namaskara.
