What people are saying:

Ashoka pillar is the most representative architectural sculpture in the Maurya Dynasty. In order to remember his strategy and promote Buddhism, King Ashoka built more than 30 monumental columns in various parts of India. These columns are generally more than ten meters high and weigh 50 tons. Among them, the most famous stone column in the Sarnath outside Benares . On the stigma are carved four male masters squatting back to back, and the middle layer is a ribbon with an elephant, a galloping horse, a zebu and a tiger. These four animals use a wheel that symbolizes Dharma. Separate; the next level is a bell-shaped upside down lotus. The entire stigma is gorgeous and complete, and polished like jade, which is also a prominent feature of the carving art in the Maurya Dynasty era.
