Sanchi known for the oldest stone structure the ‘Great Stupa’ is located 46 km from Bhopal, the capital city of Madhya Pradesh state, India. The foundations of the Sanchi stupa were laid by India’s greatest emperor ‘Ashoka the Great’. He reigned over most of present-day India along with some of the partitioned lands.

Ashoka embraced Buddhism after witnessing mass deaths in the Kalinga war and dedicated his life to the spread of Buddhism all over Asia and erected Buddhist temples, chaityas, stupas, and monasteries marking the life of Gautama Buddha.

Sanchi is famous in the world for its stupas, monolithic Ashoka Pillar, temples, monasteries, and sculptural wealth; all these astonishing monuments represent the outstanding Buddhist art and architecture from the early Mauryan period in the 3rd century BCE.

The Buddhist monuments of Sanchi have been listed among the UNESCO World Heritage Sites since 1989.
