About Sanchi Museum, Sanchi

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.

  • The museum is very neat and clean. Authorities have maintained it very well. The monuments are well taken care. They have an entry charge of 30 per head which includes visiting museum and Sanchi Stupa(monument). The grass is green everywhere with security keeping an eye on it. One should definitely visit this place once.

  • This place is so wonderful. You will get scenes of forest behind and train running at a distance in the forests. Thank God Islamic rulers could not destroy this place completely. But yes, the terrorists have cut down many idols and structures

  • Museum of sanchi. Great place to visit and spend some time. The museum is very big and if you see all items thoroughly it may take 2 hrs to have complete visit. No extra charge to visit museum. Same ticket of sanchi stoop will be used here. And security person will ask for same ticket.

  • Aesthetic. Dreamy. A reminder of a bygone era. Works of masterpiece of the old generation

  • Great place to know architecture excavation of sanchi stupa and India during early 19th entury. Mark helpful if you got helped.
