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.

  • It's a UNESCO heritage site. A very important monument for Buddhists. It was built under the vision of King Ashoka during the 3rd century. It is maintained really well. Came here with my family. A must visit if you come to Bhopal. It's around 60km if Bhopal. Do check yourself I might be wrong. The place is maintained pretty well. Felt really calm. There are really good view points. It was a pleasant experience.

  • One of the oldest historical place in India. The weather is very nice. The view from the uphill is just awesome. Although there is only one food stall. There is lack of tourist guide also. But the place is awesome for family trip.

  • Nice place and a must visit place outside Bhopal. Its around 50 kms from Bhopal and a easy drive through. A monument we have studied about in our school ! Since its at hill top and rocks around, so its quite hot over there. Its advisable to visit when the weather is pleasant.

  • A serene and clam place... Amazing view.. Entry ticket is for Rs. 40. You can spend as much time as you want. Has good public toilets as well here.

  • Nice place to visit. 60 Km from Bhopal. Ticket is simply 25 rupees. Enjoy the Buddhist stupa. Do visit before 5 pm. Basic amenities are there with photography arrangement.
