The Buddhist Heritage Orissa Revisited, edited by Pratapaditya Pal,

Title:The Buddhist Heritage Orissa Revisited, edited by Pratapaditya Pal,
Author:Mitra, Debala
Enumeration:Vol. 52-3, p. 27-47
Abstract:Orissa played an important role in the development and dissemination of Buddhism, as evident from the accounts of Xuan-Zang, and the Buddhist vestiges from the Mauryan period onwards. Important among them are the Ashokan edicts, and Pushpagiri and Ratnagiri mahaviharas. Many of the Bhauma-kara kings were responsible for the construction of monasteries such as the Jayashram vihara and Ratnagiri mahavihara. The excavated Buddhist sites such as Lalitagiri, Udayagiri, and Ratnagiri are discussed, as also other Buddhist remains belonging to 7th-10th century.
