Sanchi Museum - Review

Although built during Ancient India, Sanchi Stupa was rediscovered in the British regime by General Taylor during some excavations. In the year 1919, a small museum was established on the hilltopby Sir John Marshall, former Director General of ASI to preserve the relics found during excavation. A visit to this museum will introduce you to noteworthy antiques such as lion capital of Ashokan pillar. Managed by “Archaeological Survey of India”, this museum is a great way to understand this architecture and Madhya Pradesh tourism as a whole. Exhibits that get displayed inside this museum donot belong only to Sanchi but also from nearby places like Vidisha, Gyraspur, Murelkhurd etc. There are four galleries and a main hall that take you on a journey through the ancient India and its architecture.
