About Sanchi Stupa No. 2, Sanchi
While the main Stupa predominates Sanchi, there is another Stupa that requires equal admiration and attention. The number 2 Stupa stands at the very edge of the hill and looks an exquisite piece of art work with striking feature of the stone balustrade that encircles it. This stupa is approximately 39 feet in diameter and 22½ feet in height and looks magnificent even till today. On the balustrade that surrounds this Stupa, you will see a number of female deities and a great variety of real and mythological animals including winged lions, horse-headed and fish-headed humans, elephants, snakes and bulls making it look like Egyptian Hieroglyphs. Do spare some time to admire its architecture and to be bewitched by it.

Sanchi Stupa No. 2, Sanchi Reviews
Nice well maintained place. Not crowded. Loved it. I will like to visit it again if I get a chance. You can feel a inner peace while near this place. I am an atheist. Not Buddhist by birth or by religion. Still you will feel very relaxed and secure. There are lot of white rabbits and ducks playing in a nearby enclosure.
Very quiet n silent place best for meditation its like u can feel your soul here. It's has historic monuments, good for those too who r interested in history. I loved the place. N I guess everyone would have. ....
A must visit world heritage site. It feels proud to be part of this ancient Indian culture. The art work is unbelievable & par excellence. The ancient technology & science was far advanced in Ancient India compared to the rest of the world.
The most important Buddhist site. The stupa has an history beginning in 3rd century BC and had underwent development over the next 1500 years with every ruling dynasty and the commoners contributing to its development. Then it was abandoned to be rediscovered in 1800s. It is site from which the symbol of Indian Government is drawn. The site is maintained well. There are security guards all around. The lawns are clean. It attracts tourists from all over the world.
One of the famous historic tourist places in India. A nice place to hang around with your friends. Located near Vidisha town of Madhya Pradesh. Good places to have great photos. Avoid going under scorching sunlight. You will be tired. Good to go in evenings. Parking slot is available for bikes and cars. Get down at Sanchi railway station if you are coming in train. Tea, cold drinks and snacks are available.
