This comprehensive and illustrated Guide Book deals with three Buddhist ‘places: Sarnath, Varanasi and Kausambi. Its main focus, however, is Sarnath, the place where the Buddha “turned the wheel of dharma”. After explaining the history of Sarnath, the author describes its main archaeological sites, monuments and temples. He then presents a picture of Varanasi and its ancient Buddhist heritage, and lastly makes a case for the rediscovery of Kausambi with its practically forgotten Buddhist heritage. Other information of interest is also included.
