Stupa No 2

, Sanchi

Placed at the periphery of the hill, Stupa number 2 is characterized by the striking stone railings that surrounds it. Built in the 2nd century BC, this stupa is placed on an artificial podium and it lies beneath all the other stupas. Except its stone fencing this stupa do not have gateways like the other ones. But one can see intricate and exquisite carvings and other decorations on these hedges.

Some of the carvings embrace birds with human head (kinnara) figures with elephant head and fish tail (makaras), yakshi and yaksha (male and female nature spirits) and snake (naga). The stupa also houses the vestiges of the two great Buddhist gurus, Kasyapagotra and Suvijayita.
