In the Footsteps of Buddha
In the first of an Everyman series of four modern pilgrimages, Alexander Frater journeys through Nepal to Bodh Gaya in northern India, where
Buddha gained enlightenment.
On the way he watches
Keanu Reeves on location in Bertolucci's latest epic Little Buddha, meets a 2-year-old reincarnated monk, gets caught up in the curfew following the destruction of the Ayodhya temple and enters a world tourists rarely glimpse.
Archaeological digs in 19th-century India uncovered evidence of the life of Prince
