Description

This comprehensive and illustrated guide book deals with three Buddhist Places. Its main focus, however, is Sarnath, a place where Buddha turned the Wheel of Dharma

after explaining the history of Sarnath, the author describes the main archaeological sites, monuments and temples. He then presents a picture of Varanasi and its ancient Buddhist sites, and lastly makes a case for the rediscovery of Kausambi with its practically forgotten Buddhist heritage.
