Abstract: This paper presents research on the Buddhist sites of Kara Tepe located in Termez, Republic of Uzbekistan conducted by Rissho University in partnership with Uzbekistan research institutions. It also offers an organized arrangement of previous research concerning the Buddhist sites of Zurmala in the same region undertaken beginning in the fiscal year of 2016, along with research findings and an indication of issues facing the future. Both sites are thought to have been constructed in the 2nd Century by Kanishka I of the Kushan Empire. Preceding this in the 4th Century B.C., Alexander the Great, ruler of Macedonia, had made an expedition there with a great number of Grecians to bring the region under his command. The region later came to be governed by the Kushan Empire following the Greco-Bactrian Kingdom, the Tocharians and the Greater Yuezhi. There then, through the amalgamation of Indic and Grecian cultures, appeared Buddhist images, which are thought to have contributed to the spread of Buddhist culture. And just what were those actual images like? The sites of Kara Tepe and Zurmala provide keys to deduce this.
