Composed in Sanskrit, it praises Gaya, one of the famous centres of holy pilgrimage and amongst the oldest cited in the religious history of India. The present publication, accompanied by a translation in French, presents the Gaya Mahatmya of the Vayu-purana. The introduction describes Gaya and its pilgrimage today and afterwards deals with Buddhist (Pali canon, narratives of Chinese pilgrims) and Hindu (Mahabharata, Ramayana, Purana, medieval compilations in particular) sources as well as European documents (from the 18th century to the present day), therby sketching the history of the holy place.
