Sanchi Tourism & Travel Guide

Sanchi happens to be the best of all discoveries made by Alexander Cunningham in 1851. He then went on to establish the Archeological Survey of India. This place is extremely important to the Buddhist community it was during Cunningham’s excavations that this site threw up stupas, including the famous Sanchi Stupa. Believed to hold the bones and beads of some of Buddha’s closest disciples. It is believed that Emperor Ashoka had turned this place into an important Buddhist site during the 3rd century BCE, this making Sanchi the oldest Buddhist site to have ever existed. The structures here date back to the 1st century BCE.
Avoid the summers and visit this place any time between October through March.

The archeological museum was established by Sir John Marshell after the site was discovered in 1818 by General Taylor. The museum also houses Sir John Marshall’s hut. Sir Marshal was instrumental in restoration of the structures excavated at Sanchi. Constructed in colonial style, the hut stands as a pure historical delight amidst lush green garden and a beautiful view

Though it's a small city making its way towards commercialisation, Nagpur is a delight to discover. It also offers all its visitors a delicious variety of oranges. More importantly, Nagpur is the gateway to many national parks and reserves including Pench National Park and Tadoba-Andhari Tiger Reserve. Among places to see in Nagpur, Shree Ganesh Mandir Tekdi, Deeksha Bhoomi and Nagpur Ramtek temple are great options to include in your itinerary. The high quality mandarin oranges grown here are souvenirs to carry back home in case you are here for a day. Though, it's best not to expect too much from the city as a tourist since you might be disappointed.
