A Record of the Buddhistic Kingdoms

http://acc6.its.brooklyn.cuny.edu/~phalsall/texts/faxian.html

An account of the (394-414CE)journey by Fa-hsien and his companions. They visited as many of the Buddhist sacred shrines as they could, especially those associated with the presence of the Buddha. The selections presented here show the reasons for the estblishment of these shrines, the legends that surrounded them, and the ways in which they were maintained.
