  • Placed in context by a contemporary scholar of Nepalese history, this work by a colonial doctor and artist contains a detailed account and visuals about Buddhism in Nepal. The author provides an interested observer's overview that includes the origins of the religion, its principles and philosophy, its introduction into Nepal, the temples and monasteries there, their architecture, the objects of worship, religious festivals, unique developments such as the adoption of the Hindu caste system by the community, the destruction of Buddhist temples and property during the Gorkha invasion, as well as the abiding harmony between Nepali Hindus and Buddhists. 

    This book will interest general readers for its simple informative narrative and specialists for its scholarly value.
