Abstract

The article presents materials from the field diaries of S.F. Oldenburg, which deal with the investigation of the cave temples of Tuyuk-mazar in 1915, and “Notes on the Caves of Bezeklik”. These notes describe some prominent monuments of the wall-painting, give plans of the caves, analyze some artistic features of the painting of Eastern Turkestan, present transcriptions of several unpublished Buddhist inscrip-tions and their comparison with certain fragments of Buddhist writings (Ca-tuṣpariṣatsutra, Sanghabhedavastu, Ratnamālāvadāna, Devatāsūtra, Alpadevatāsūtra). Transcriptions of 1915 are compared with diaries of 1909.
