About the Book
This is the story of a Chinese monk named Fa Hien, who undertook a painfully long and arduous journey to india 1600 yars ago in pursuit of knowledge-to seek the true teachings of Buddha. It is the story of a man of immense courage, sincerity and faith.
After coming to India in 399 AD, during the Gupta rule, Fa Hien toured the country extensively and recorded and recorded his observation. His accounts mention the Indian socio-economic and political aspects only marginally but are objective and authentic. Fa Hien’s records, therefore, form an important source of Indian history during the fifth century.
