The town of Sanchi is synonymous with Buddhist Stupas - hemispherical structures typically containing relics of the Buddha or his followers. The Stupas of Sanchi were constructed on the orders of Emperor Ashoka to preserve and spread the Buddhist philosophy. Sanchi has been protecting these beautiful and sacred architectural wonders, just the way these wonders have been safeguarding ancient history and art of the Mauryan period.

Tourist Attractions in Sanchi:
Ashoka Pillar: Proven in the 3rd Century, it flaunts the Greco-Buddhist Architecture in India. Unlike other
antique monuments, this pillar still glitters & sparkles as if it were polished yesterday. The crown of the
pillar is located in the Sanchi Museum; however, tourists could witness the well-proportioned beam
close the Sanchi Stupa.
Buddhist Viharas: Sanchi is a live example of all forms of Buddhist architecture in India. These viharas
were made up of woods, unlike the monasteries we sight today. The unrepeatable splendor on
witnessing this posh art is hard to forget.
The Gupta Temple (Dashavatara Temple): The Gupta Temple is one of the pristine temples ever made.
The temple exemplifies all the principles that were necessary to be followed while building a temple.
The proficient work of the temple exuberate the splendid artwork of the by-gone era and acted as a
herald for Indian Temple Architecture.
Sanchi Museum: The Sanchi Museum has cosseted the culture, traditions, & architecture in India. Mixed
gateways, Toranas parts, the crown of the Ashoka Pillar, Pottery are the few items that are to be found.
Based on the most pompous surrounding, a visit to the Museum is very a distinct experience.
The Stupas: There are various stupas including the Great Stupa of Sanchi. These stupas were made to
keep the sign of disciples of Buddha & some of his disciples. These are a matchless work of design that is
hard to discover elsewhere.
