In subsequent chapter architectural complex of Nalanda is discussed that existed right from the fourth century A.D. till its final extinetion in the 12th century A.D., as these Monasteries, stupas, caityas, and shrines have yielded large number of antiquities and precious art treasures of ancient Nalanda. Chapters three to six give the different aspects of the development of a center of art (sculptures) at Nalanda. The materials used, icons (images) carved and their age wise classification i.e. Gupta, post-Gupta, Pala and Sena etc. are the salient features of these chapters.
