MAHABODHI

These edicts have so far been located at Dhauli near Bhubaneshwar in Orissa, Jayagada in the Ganjam district of Orissa, Girnar near Junagadh, Kathiawar, Kali in Dehra-Dun, Manshira in Hazara district (West Pakistan), Shahabazgarhi in Peshwar district (West Pakistan), Sopara in Thana district of Bombay, Yerragadi in Kurnool district of Andhra, Pradesh, Bairat in Jaunpur, Brahmangiri in Mysore, Gavi Math, Maski, Palkigunda (in Hyderabad), Rupnath in Jabalpur, Siddapura in Mysore, Kosambi in Allahabad district (later removed to the fort by the order of Akbar), Lumbini, Nigliwa, Mirnath at Meerut (later removed to the ridge of Delhi by Feroz Shali Tuglak) and Topra pillar (removed from Ambala and re-erected at Kolla Firuz Shahi, in Delhi).

Besides these, we have evidence of the pillar set up by Asoka that had stood to the south of the principal stupas at Sanchi and also at Sarnath. In Bihar we have Asoka's pillars inculcating the greatness of Buddhism at Sasaram (Shahabad district), Vaisali (Muzaffarpur district), Lauriya and Are raj Rampurwa (Champaran district).

A few words on the political history of Bihar at the time of Buddha and the later few centuries will he helpful. Indian history from the 6th century B.C. onwards is based relatively more on historicity than legends and traditions.
