All about Historic Sanchi Stupa

In the Indian state of Madhya Pradesh, the small town of Sanchi is situated in the Raisen district. The historic Buddhist site, a well-liked tourist destination and UNESCO World Heritage site, is its most notable feature. Bhopal, the capital of Madhya Pradesh, is easily accessible by car or train and is situated roughly 50 km northeast of Sanchi.

The city of Vidisha was probably the reason behind the construction of Buddhist monuments at Sanchi. This prosperous and populous city in central India served as the ancient Malwa's capital. The great Mauryan emperor Ashoka's wife Devi belonged to Vidisha, so he had an interest in Vidisha and the surrounding region.
