    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...
    There are Stupas dating to 300 BC immediatly after Buddhist council & Emperor Ashoka who converted most population in Asia in least amount of time. Later his generals like Andhras furthered the Buddhist traditions until 300 CE.

    Emperor Ashoka from part Sakyan (early Scythian) lineage. During his lifetime he spread Buddhism in Asia within a generation. No body else in any other religion could match that that much coverage in area or number of people within short time frame in Human History. The artifacts from 225 BC are still national symbols in India associated with ancient Indian thinking from Iron age.

    The stupa is just a mound of earth sometime covered with bricks like Sanchi Stupa that has been completely rebuilt.. There is no 2000 years old brick left.


    A old Stupa is a primitive "construction".. not a building.



    Sanchi Stupa in India is not a Dome or a building...

    Domes are elaborate and free standing structures acting as roofs for buildings.

    ..

    A building is something like this..without any reconstruction..

    Stupas of 2000 year old are relatively primitive brick structures as you see in Getty image previous post. There are some marble & stone structures but not as Grand as those from 400 CE.

    It is completely Indian structure with mostly Indian symbols like Elephant, asiatic lion, people in Indian clothing doesn't look Greek like Indo-bactrian greek artifacts nor like Roman influence in Amaravati marble doors but probably more similar to Indus Valley. These gates were built to display stories from Buddhist literature & were popular as the gates of stupas.

    The older Indian structure were mostly made of Bricks or Huge Timber (teak) stalls. The city of Pataliputra from Iron Age (1200BC) in Gangetic plain was mostly Timber with brick and stone foundations. None of those timber exist now. Only the brick structures show up. The Indus Valley cities (6000BC to 1500BC) have vast brick structures that had halls built from Timber which Stupas probably were based out of.
