Hiouen Thsang or Hwen Thsang is an alternative transliteration for Xuanzang (c. 602-664 A.D.): a Chinese Buddhist monk, scholar, traveler, and translator who traveled to India in the seventh century and described the interaction between Chinese Buddhism and Indian Buddhism during the early Tang dynasty. Hiouen Thsang (Xuanzang) became famous for his seventeen-year overland journey to India (including Nalanda), which is recorded in detail in the classic Chinese text “Great Tang Records on the Western Regions”.
The history of India traces the identification of countries, villages, towns and other regions of India, as well as royal dynasties, rulers, tribes, local festivities and traditions and regional languages. Ancient India enjoyed religious freedom and encourages the path of Dharma, a concept common to Buddhism, Hinduism, and Jainism.
