About Sanchi


Sanchi is one of the popular tourist attractions in Central India. It is a tiny village situated in the Raisen district of Madhya Pradesh. The village is famous for housing various Buddhist memorials and ranks as one of the famous pilgrimage hubs for the followers of Buddhism. Currently, about fifty memorials are there on the mound of Sanchi, which comprises various places of worship and three stupas. Sanchi houses various Buddhist memorials and historic sites which belong to the period ranging from 12th century CE (Common Era) to 3rd century BCE (Before Common Era). The Sanchi Stupa is a popular Buddhist Pilgrimage Center in India. The area has won the honor of a UNESCO World Heritage Site.The Stupa is bordered by Toranas or forms of entrances and every one of the Toranas is a symbol of harmony, affection, bravery, and faith.

Eating Out  

Sanchi does not have too many elaborate eating places or delicacies that stand out. However, the town does foster a subtle variety and the few eating joints available here offer decent North Indian, South Indian, Chinese and Continental dishes. The local delicacies of Madhya Pradesh that you might chance upon here include Dal Bafla, Biryani, Kebabs, Korma, Poha, Rogan Josh, Jalebi, Ladoos as well as beverages like Lassi and Sugarcane Juice.


In fact the little village that houses the remnants of ancient Stupas, Chaityas and Viharas, is not a typical shopping destination. Although the area draws a lot of tourists, very few go for shopping in Sanchi. The ace craftsmen of Bhopal weave some finest qualities of muslin, which are hot favorite with those who go for shopping in Bhopal. You may also choose to pick up the exquisite Zardozis, embroidered Indian garments, leather works and Jutis (shoes) while shopping in Bhopal.There several numbers of shopping joints and bazaars in Bhopal that substitutes for the lack of shopping opportunity in Sanchi.
