Although many scholars have commented on different aspects of the Buddhist cities in early India, which in those days attracted the seekers of truth from various parts of the Asian continent, the picture that has emerged so far is not at all satisfactory, and requires reinterpretation and critical assessment.

As we know, these places, because of their association with the Great Master, became vibrant centres of pilgrimage in the course of centuries, and events connected with His life became the favourite objects of representation by the artists in early Buddhist art.

The cities flourished and continued to attract seekers of knowledge for more than one thousand years. In the present monograph, the significance of these places and the various events connected with them has been thoroughly discussed.
