Description About the author
 
Conserving Buddhist Heritage leads to a nuanced understanding of tangible and intangible aspects of Buddhist heritage to recover and sustain authenticity in its conservation. The volume enriches the conservation discourse in the context of Buddhist heritage through documentation, restoration, historical background while creating relevance in contemporary milieu. The book contains 19 contributions by 21 leading archaeologists, conservationists, museologists, historians, and other experts of Buddhist heritage. These contributions range from an overview of multiple facets of Buddhist heritage -- archeology, symbolism, history -- to conservation efforts through philosophy, museums, and cultural permeation.

The volume underscores the uniqueness of Buddhist heritage as both a historical and living heritage. Its conservation requires a specialized understanding of many different perspectives. This collection has been brought out in honour of Professor Vibha Upadhyaya, Director of Centre for Museology and Conservation and Buddhist Studies Centre, University of Rajasthan, Jaipur. It is hoped that this volume will present fresh insights to make the conservation of Buddhist heritage more informed with a renewed role of documentation, archaeology and museums.
