Effort under way to map Buddhist historical sites across Asia

Initiated by government mapping and tourist agencies in India and Thailand, work has commenced on a comprehensive map of historical Buddhist sites across Southeast Asia and the Indian subcontinent.

It’s estimated that the map will be completed within two years. Read the whole story here.
