This monumental book is the result of the painstaking research work by the author for a number of years and its presented in three volumes: sources and background, art, iconography and architecture respectively. The first volume gives a complete picture of the rich materials concerning Nalanda as hitherto published and as collected and unearthed at Nalanda. It consists of (a) historical, (b) educational and (c) religion and philosophic aspects of Nalanda. The second volume is devoted to the Nalanda art. It is closely interwoven with the neighbouring centres of art in Magadha and closely connected with the art centres of the outside world, thus playing a leading role for the last 1000 years of Indian art in a coherent and constructive manner.
