I visited Sanchi in the month of October with family. One of the key attraction is Ashoka pillar. It is beautifully maintained. Feel proud to see such thing exist in India.

Broken pillar, but interesting to read the information posted. The story goes that this pillar exhorted Buddhists to maintain unity-- nice thought.
