Deorkothar Stupa: New Light in Early Buddhism

Title:Deorkothar Stupa: New Light in Early Buddhism
Author:Mishra, Phani Kanta
Enumeration:Vol. 52 Issue no. 1; September 2000, p. 64-74
Abstract:The monastic nucleus in Rewa district, M.P, was recently excavated. It had been believed that there was no human settlement here before Gupta times; but its location along the Barhat-Sarnath-Kausambi triangle, a much used route in Ashokan times with the Tomas flowing below led this author to look for evidence of habitation here. Besides the Great Stupa, the author reports on the recently-completed excavation yields: stupas, rock shelters, a Mauryan pillar piece with Brahmi script, and the earliest attempt to portray art forms on stone railings. The last period of activity here was in Sunga times --; 2nd century BCE.
