Sanchi

Raisen , Madhya Pradesh

In the Raiseri district of Madhya Pardesh lies one of the greatest treasures of our country- the Sanchi Stupa. This is one of the most well preserved stupas and they directly reflect the teachings of Buddhism. This is a place that every Indian has read about in their history books. This is from where the structure of the base of Buddhism can be gleaned. It is the location of several Buddhist monuments dating from the 3rd century BCE to the 12th CE and is one of the important places of Buddhist pilgrimage. This place has seen the start and flourish of a religion throughout more than a thousand years and this makes Sanchi one very important place. The Great Stupa of Sanchi is the oldest stone structure in India and it was commissioned by the Emperor Ashoka in the 3rd century BCE. This is one of the places that tell you the tale of a time that was not only glorious but also the born of a new religion. There were many additions done to this stupa bythe Sunga and te Satavahana dynasty and today it stands as a tall and very proud stricture in Sanchi, attracting many people from all over. The one plvae that you need to visit in order to understand this ancient but very important place is the Sanchi museum. A collection of damaged and broken sculptures were placed in museum. General Taylor of Bengal Cavalry has taken responsibility to maintain stupas, temples and monasteries by extracting them from the Sanchi hills. Now the museum has many historical items like pottery, caskets and various traditional items which belong to the 1st to 3rd centuries. An absolute treasure trove of history, Sanchi is one of the most famous places in the country.
