Looking at Ashoka's Traces in India

LOOKING AT ASHOKA'S TRACES IN INDIA

This small exhibition highlights the different places and types of evidence in which traces of Asoka have been found in the subcontinent. While the most famous monuments associated with him are free-standing pillars inscribed with some of his messages, there are other important evidences to collect and to consider, such as coins, sculptures, and other archaeological material. Despite much attention surrounding Asoka as a great king, it is remarkable how many questions remain unanswered about him and his empire.
