Suttas delivered by Buddha at Rajgir and Nalanda

The Buddha delivered many suttas at places around Rajgir and Nalanda. We made an effort to compile a quick list of the discourses delivered at Rajgir but it is still an incomplete one and it would be an impossible task for us to exhaust each reference and we are leaning on our readers to participate in this momentous task. Our goal with this compilation is to encourage others with similar pursuit of minds to contribute towards this documentation and make it a comprehensive reference. This will help generate awareness and preparing an appropriate interpretation plan for the places related to Buddhist history and give them the exposure and credit they deserve.

Similarly there is a need to prepare a chronology of events associated with the Buddha and a probable sequence of suttas delivered by the Buddha.
