"We are taking the artefacts of all the three sections of the religion - Maha Yana, Hina Yana and Vajra Yana. All the artefacts are the collection of the National Museum from different parts of the country," said Sanjiv Kumar Singh, the planner and coordinator of the exhibition.
The exhibition will showcase over 50 art objects including sculptures, manuscripts, jewellery and pieces of decorative art.
"There are a lot of followers of Buddhism in Seoul and the exhibition will be an exciting event to showcase India's rich Buddhist heritage," Singh told IANS ahead of departure.
He said they had gone to South Korea a decade back but the exhibition would be a great experience for both countries and help strengthen their cultural bonds.
