A Record of Buddhist Kingdoms; Being an Account by the Chinese Monk Fa-Hien of Travels in India and Ceylon in Search of the Buddhist Books of Discipline, is one of the most important sources for reconstructing the life and conditions of the times. Though brief, his account of the general characteristics and tendencies of the Gupta imperial administration is very valuable. Likewise, the account also gives a fair deal of information on the religious usages and practices and is invaluable for the graphic information it provides about Buddhism in India, Central Asia and Ceylon.
