TAASA Archaeology in Asia Lecture Series

The Relics and Monuments of Buddhist Kashgar

In her talk to well over 50 TAASA members and guests, Marika Vicziany, Emeritus Professor at Monash Asia Institute in Melbourne made a passionate case for the importance of continuing the archaeological work of the Monash Asia Institute and others in the Kashgaria region. Material objects found in the region and preliminary investigation suggest that Kashgar was one of the main entry points of Buddhism into China and Professor Visziany described a number of sites where she hopes full excavation work will soon be possible. This presentation reflected the joint work of Emiritus Professor Vicziany and Angelo Andrea Di Castro, Senior Lecturer, Monash Asia Institute.
