The paper presents a detailed reconstruction of the itinerary of the Tibetan pilgrim O rgyan pa towards Uddiyana. The reconstruction is based on the translation of his travelog published by Giuseppe Tucci in 1940. The journey took place between 1260 and 1283. In light of the most recent archaeological research, some geographical benchmark of his itinerary can be defined. This paper focuses in particular on the whereabouts of the so-called “Indrabhuti Temple” in the vicinity of Manglawar, Swat.
