Sanchi stupas are known to us all, thanks to our History books in school. But the real thing, a visit to the stupas are something you cannot imagine till you go there for the first time. A sense of calm takes over in the premises and the carving on the stupas is absolutely spectacular. MUST-VISIT!

If you find calmness and want to know freshness after meditation, this place is for you. Apart from physical structure and historical significance, something affected me more, that was the auro of that place.. I meditated there for 1 hour and it was my best experience so far. I didn't want to leave that place, would love to visit again... More

If you are visiting Bhopal, you must include a tour to Sanchi, its a very nice place. You will feel very good here. Winter season is the best time to visit Sanchi.

Definitely worth the trip out. We have not seen anything like it elsewhere and it's a very peaceful place to visit. If you are in Bhopal it's a nice day trip

Collective view of our party of 6 was that Sanchi is a little overrated as a "must see" sight. This may have been partly because we had traveled 4 hours to get there, and certainly because our pre-booked "guide" (who charged 5000 INR) left us after only 30 minutes, and foreigners are charged 500 INR whilst locals are charged 30...

A must see. Stay at the MP Tourism resort that is right there and spend at least half a day at the stupa...if you are into mindfulness or meditation, this is a great spot to spend a quiet half hour in addition to exploring the site. There are small stupas below, the steps are as zen as the stupas themselves.... More
