NALANDA

Bradley carried out some excavations and published a monograph in 1872. The Royal Asiatic Society of London gave a liberal grant and the Archaeological Survey of India, with the help of this grant, took up a well-planned excavation of the site of Nalanda from 1915. Later on, the Archaeological Survey of India did the excavations on its own resources. Great results have been achieved by theactivities of the Archaeological Survey of India and a very large number of relies have been found and the monuments were saved from further ruin. Nalanda, as the site of a great temple city at one time, is one of the most important visiting places in India now.

Some references have to be made as to the results of the excavations. There is an archaeological museum at Nalanda and the Custodian of the museum issues admission tickets, for a very small fee, to see the monuments at the site and the museum. The approach road to the site of the excavation leads one through an old passage and on the left is the monastery site No. 1 and on the right monastery sites Nos. 4 and 5. The most imposing and the largest structure is the main stupa site No. 3.This stupa is a huge square structure standing in the middle of a court surrounded by small votive stupas.
