Sanchi – Remaining Monuments

In total there are 50 monuments within the Sanchi complex, each structure regardless of its form was numbered from 1 to 50 by Sir John Marshall, the Director General of Archaeology in India, who spent eight years cataloging and restoring the site between 1912 and 1919.

Sanchi – Stupa 2

Sanchi Stupa 2 has a wonderful setting, located next to a man made pond/tank with open views to the west. This stupa is somewhat detached from the rest of the monuments of Sanchi, and is hidden away out of sight whilst you’re exploring the other structures. As a result, in all probability you will be the only person here.
