dc.description.abstractMyanmar has a long tradition of preserving palm-leaf and paper manuscripts in libraries and repositories. We probably learnt the art of writing and of using palm-leaf as a medium with the introduction of Buddhism from India and Sri Lanka in the early years of the present millennium. The Pyu people of Myanmar used palm-leaves and probably had repositories for mss. attached to Buddhist shrines and monasteries. Although the actual palm-leaves have not survivied from the Pyu Period (from about 4th to 9th century A.D.) gold plates in the shape of palm-leaves with inscriptions have been found in Srikshetra, the ancient city near Pyay ( Prome ).language
