Set on a small hill, 68km from the city of Bhopal, is, what could possibly be a perfect setting for an Indiana Jones movie. The Sanchi Stupa is one of the most beautiful examples of ancient Indian Architecture. The lush green surroundings and the huge stone structures stays with one even after they have left the small town of Sanchi, where this ancient ruin is located.
