Sanchi Stupa. Sanchi Stupa is located at Sanchi Town in Raisen District of Madhya Pradesh. The Sanchi stupa is the oldest stone structure in India. The stupa was originally commissioned by The great Ashoka in 3rd century BC. The main body of the stupa, or anda, represents the world mountain, which rises through the center of the Buddhist universe. The yasti, which rises through the top of the anda, symbolizes the axis mundi, the point at the center of the universe that connects heaven and Earth. The three stone disks on the yasti, called chhatraveli (or chatras for short) represent the three jewels of Buddhism that is the Buddha (Siddhartha Gautama), the Dharma (the Law) and the Sangha (the monastic community). General Taylor a British officer in 1818 first documented the existence of Sanchi. The Sanchi Stupa has a cosmological orientation. Atop view of the stupa depicts the mandala – the sacred circle.
