Museums In Sanchi
Like most site museums in India, this one also owes
its genesis to an English General accidently stumbling
upon some ancient ruins around 1818.
Eventful archaeological explorations revealed one of the
richest sculptural finds of Buddhist heritage.
The period of superb creativity stretched between
3rd century BC and 13th century AD, blending Hindu and
Buddhist styles and building a complex of stupas, temples,
monasteries, etc. that remain unparalleled in excellence
of form and beauty of detail.
Other notable sculptures found here include statues of the Buddha,several bodhisattvas and early Hindu period statues of
ganesh, Mahishasuramardini among others.
