Stupa No. 2 is located at some distance from the other 2 stupas which are located at the top. It takes around 10 minutes of walk to reach the stupa though absolutely worth it. Stairs are broken so one needs to be careful.

Stupa 2 is part of UNESCO World Heritage site of Sanchi Stupas. It is not as well-decorated as the stupa 1 but is still worth a visit.

There are 3 stupas in the park all of them very beautiful. This stupa has comparatively less carvings than the main stupa.
