Studies in History and Archaeology of Vikramasila Mahavihara: The Last Beacon of Buddhist Philosophy

Rajiva Kumar Sinha (Editor) Om Prakash Pandey (Editor)

The volume is an humble attempt towards understanding Vikramasila Mahavihara 'the last beacon of Buddhist philosophy'.

Overshadowed by the glory of Nalanda it gained prominence during the early medieval period when the old prestige of the Nalanda gradually devolved on it. In Tibetan legends it holds about the same position of pre-eminence as it accorded in Chinese records to the Nalanda.
