Detailed overview

Sanchi Stupa is a Buddhist monument, located about 50 km from Bhopal and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The stupas were built around 3rd century by king Ashoka, a renowned follower of Buddhism. Stupas are large hemispherical domes, in which Buddha's relics were kept in their central chamber. One of the best-preserved stupas in India is the Sanchi Stupa. It is surrounded by a railing with four carved gateways facing all the four directions.

Udayagiri caves are 5th-century rock-cut caves, this is the only site that can be verifiably associated with a Gupta Period monarch from its inscriptions. These caves house iconography of Vaishnavism (Vishnu), Shaktism (Durga) and Shaivism (Shiva). These monuments are protected by the Archeological Survey of India.
