  1. ^ ``The stupa was one of the most characteristic architectural remains of the Buddhist world; they are not found in Hinduism at all. In function we may view them as a specialized type of tumulus: they were circular in shape with a domed top, and they were built to cover the relics of the Buddha, his early followers, or some other essential symbol of the Buddhist religion. It might be recalled that the Buddha was Śākyamuni ("Sage of the Śākyas" i.e. the Sakas) and, within an Indic context, Buddhism was a kind of "Iranian heresy".`` -- Mallory J. P. and Victor H.
