School of Buddhist Studies Field Trip to Bodh Gaya: Understanding Buddhist Archaeology

October 25, 2016

Students from the School of Buddhist Studies, Philosophy and Comparative Religions (SBS) went for a field trip to Archaeological Museum Bodh Gaya, Sujata Garh and Maha Bodhi Temple on October 22, 2015. The field trip was conducted as a part of the course “Introduction to Buddhist Archaeology”, taught by Dr. Garima Kaushik.  

The aim of this field trip was to introduce students to Buddhist Archaeology through the historical site of Bodh Gaya and other sites in the vicinity. During the trip students examined and studied various artifacts in the museum as well as in the historical sites. They also learnt about how to discern various layers that may be lying under any archaeological site just like the present site of Bodhi temple that has many layers under it.
