Nagananda by King Harsha is one of the best Sanskrit dramas in five acts dealing with the popular story of Jimutavahana’s self-sacrifice to save the Nagas. The unique characteristic of this drama is the invocation to Lord Buddha in the Nandi verse, which is considered as one of the best examples of the dramatic compositions wherein the norms of dramaturgy are followed up to a considerable extent.
