Year of India Event: Ellora and Ajanta and the Spread of Religious Iconography Along the Silk Road



Date: 10/10/2012
Time: 12:00 pm to 2:00 pm


France Pepper, founder and director of China Insider, a travel firm, explores the Silk Road’s contributions to the dissemination and exchange of Buddhism between India and China. By providing a transit route for rituals, texts, iconography, architecture, and fundamental ideas, the Silk Road enabled Buddhism to spread across countries. Ellora and Ajanta, two significant rock-cut temples and sites of religious pilgrimage, were pivotal to this historical experience.

Hosted by the Godwin-Ternbach Museum
