Description

It vividly describes the archaeological relics and historical monuments of China in the provinces of Shanxi, Henan and Gansu, besides Beijing and its surroundings. One gets a glimpse of the great Buddhist rock-cut caves of northern and central China through excellent photo-illustrations.

Besides, an analytical correlative study of the Buddhist contacts between southeast India, China and Sri Lanka is attempted, bringing to light the potential overseas Perfume Route, which supplemented the older and well-known overland Silk Road.
