Description
Preface

A detailed study of important ancient historical sites is greatly needed. In this monograph an attempt has been made to give an exhaustive and systematic account of Rajagriha, one of the most important ancient Indian cities, from all the available literary sources, Brahmanical Jain and Buddhist. I may draw the readers’ attention to the map of Rajagriha published in the Archaeological Survey Report for 1905-06. I am grateful to Rao Bahadur K. N. Dikshit, M.A., Director-General of Archaeology in India, for kindly asking me to undertake this work. I trust that this treatise will be found useful by those for whom.
