Sanchi Stupa No. 2 - Review

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.

  • बौद्ध धर्म से जुड़ाव रखने वाले सभी लोगों के लिए सांची किसी स्वर्ग से कम नहीं है आज भी यहां पर बौद्ध धर्म से जुड़ाव रखने वाले तथा इतिहासकार अपने बौद्ध धर्म के बारे में जानकारी की वृद्धि के लिए आया करते हैं । यहां के सांची स्तूप को लगभग सबसे पुराना नक्काशीदार स्तूप माना जाता है तथा इसके उसके बनवाने में सम्राट सम्राट अशोक ने गौतम बुद्ध से पहली बार जब बौद्ध धर्म की दीक्षा ली थी उसी समय उन्होंने स्तूप बनवाया था । स्तूप की संरचना इतनी मनमोहक है कि यहां पर आने वाले लोग स्तूप क्यों देखकर नहीं के बाद अपने आप को उसके बनाने वाले के नक्काशी को शाबाशी देने से रोक नहीं पाते हैं और ना बार-बार आने की इच्छा करती है । सांची का मुख्य स्त्रोत बौद्ध स्तूप लगभग 42 फीट ऊंचा है और यहां पर बौद्ध धर्म से जुड़ी हुई बहुत सारी समस्या रखी हुई है यहां पर बहुत सारे रखे हुए हैं जोकि माना जाता है असम राज्य में ही समय का है ।
