From the 3rd century BC, when Emperor Ashoka erected the famous pillar and stupa at Sanchi, the site has been a favoured spiritual home of Buddhists. Art and archeitecture soared to great heights here, only to then. Disapear after the 12th centuary AD until 'rediscovered' in the 19th century.

Today Sanchi is revered for having the most perfect and well –preserved stupas in the century and has been designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.

With over 125 specially –commissioned photographs, illustrations and maps, and an up –to –date Practical Information section, this is a perfect comapnion for not just the intrepid tourist but also the armchair traveller.
