The presentation is state-wise, covering 25 modern states, in alphabetical order, from Andhra Pradesh to West Bengal. The most sacred shrines, sanctified by the Buddha, are in Bihar and Uttar Pradesh. Three other states where the Best Buddhist heritage has survived are - Andhra Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh and Maharashtra. And the best gompas, monasteries in the high Himalayan Valleys where Buddhism has been a living faith through the ages, are in Arunachal Pradesh, Himachal Pradesh, Ladakh (Kashmir) and Sikkim.

To make this volume complete in all respectes, five additional notes have been added. These are on - The Edicts of Asoka (3rd century BC); Buddhist monasteries seen by Hiuen Tsang, the Chinese pilgrim, in the 7th century AD; Sacred Relics of the Buddha; Buddhist Remains in Pakistan, and Buddhist Sites in Bangla Desh.
