Sanchi located on the foot of a hill, is just 46 kms Bhopal. It is more of a village than a town. Sanchi is a religious place with historical and archaeological significance. The stupa at Sanchi is one of the oldest of the surviving monuments from the Buddhist period. Four toranas were added by the Andhras in the 2nd century A.D. Each one is spectacular with carved scenes from the Jatakas, and tales of the Buddha.
