Summary
Art and architecture of the Buddhist monastic complex at Sanchi, India.
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Located on top of a hill at Sanchi in Central India is an ancient Buddhist monastery with a dynamic 1,500-year history. It has an inscribed column of the Maurya Emperor Ashoka, a great stupa with magnificent sculpted toranas, and a variety of monastic adjuncts and temples, some built as late as the 12th century. Sanchi is indeed a microcosm of the Buddhist experience in India. This book throws new light on varying aspects of Sanchi, its original significance, the meaning of its donative inscriptions, ways of looking at its magnificent sculpture and architecture, as well as its importance today for New Buddhists.
