Buddhism and Rock (Cambridge Buddhist Institute Series)
Format: Paperback|Change

on 12 November 2004
Scholarly but very readable, this book can be recommended to anyone in whom an interest in rock-cut temples and tombs has been sparked by a visit to Petra or the Valley of the Kings or, in India, by Elephanta Island, Ajanta or Ellora, to name only some of the places most frequently included in tour itineraries.
It traces the development of cave-architecture from the earliest times to the present day, and includes vivid descriptions of all the most interesting examples that survive, from the Mediterranean to China-the main focus being on Buddhist cave-temples. The descriptions are brought to life by the large number of illustrations, which include no less than 75 recent photographs. The book has left me itching to visit some of the fascinating places which it describes, and would be invaluable to anyone planning an off-the-beaten-track visit to India.
