    Yes. Buddihist literature consist of rich set of stories called Jataka & a lot of philosophy. These Stupas had these stories from Jataka & life story of Buddhist shown on all these artifacts & were built all over Asia. Buddhist Councils (until now 6 held) had monks from all over Asia discuss these philosophies.

    Some in British Museum London https://www.britishmuseum.org/visiti...amaravati.aspx


    III century A.D... 750 years after the Death of "Buddha"......and it is a "religious" bas-relief


    Atheist don't accept as historical proofs any religious test or "anything that is "religious...


    The first non religious "proof" of Buddha date back to IV century A.D.. and they are Christian's Monk witness regard Buddhism


    What struck me in India ( apart poor people everywhere) was the fact that there are very few archeologic buildings-statue-temple older than 1500 years..

    In Pakistan there are some old walls city foundations dating back to Indo civilization 4.000 year ago...

    I think that Buddha had existed.. but the oldest historical "proofs" of Buddha date back to II-III century A.D. and they are "religious" test.
    Some atheist don't consider Saint Mark Gospel and Saint Paul letter as "historical" proofs....of Jesus existence....but they are "angry" because there other historical non religious proofs dating back 50-70 years after the Death of Jesus..

    Newsflash: there are no parties in hell -- only pain, sorrow, torment, wailing and horrifying cries for help. And many huge demons to kick your butt the whole time long, if/when the flames are not consuming your flesh. And yes, when your flesh rots and burns off, is torn off by demons, it grows back again in hell... and you live and die all over again... ad infinitum. There are no words to describe that torment, buddy... better get right with Jesus.

    Buddha and Jesus cannot be compared with each other. Buddha was a normal human who lived and died. Jesus was God who became born in human form, to redeem the world through his death and shedding of blood -- which he did on the cross, reconciled humankind to God, and after three days in the grave, he was resurrected from the dead, and thereby became the first of many to follow -- believers look forward to the day of resurrection when their bodies will also be raised from death, and be clothed with immortality like Jesus.
