Historic records confirm that the place of Buddhism. Historic records confirm that the place remained venerated by all the principal religions of ancient India as many historical and legendary personalities were associated with it. The present guide book by Dr B.R. Mani not only provides relevant information about the ancient site and its structures, but also familiarizes general visitors with the beautiful and artistic sculptures, and antiquities recovered during series of excavations conducted by the Archaeological survey of India in the past, mostly illustrated with colour photographs. In short, this is a book that one interested in archaeology, art and architecture of Sarnath may like to possess.
