Abstract:
Buddhism has existed and survived for centuries in Central Asia, therefore, the geography of diffusion of religion required the study of the historical pattern of its spread. This research analyses the spatial and temporal development of Buddhist Shrines in Central Asia. The present study delineates the geography of diffusion and spread of Buddhism in Central Asia. The temporal dimension of diffusion adds a timeline to the spread of the religion. Because a strict chorological and chronological survey of the process of diffusion and spread of Buddhism would be little more than collection of facts. Present thematic study presents an analysis of the Buddhist Shrines in the Oasis Cities of Central Asia.
This paper aims to explore cultural geography of urban settlements of Central Asia with a new perspective. The purpose of this study is to produce location-based analysis of Buddhist Shrines of Central Asia and to analyze the process of spatial diffusion and the patterns of spread of religion as a consequence of the spatial interaction.
