We took a bus from around 1km away from Bhopal Railway station to Sanchi. Which cost us Rs 45 per person. As we got down at Sanchi, opposite to where the bus stopped, there is a road with an information board to go to Buddhist Monument of Sanchi, which is also a world heritage site. Which is in walkable distance.
within 100 meters from the main road, there was a ticket counter to take a ticket. For Indian Adult and SAARC visitors, ticket cost Rs 30 and for other countries citizens it cost Rs 500 per person. Free entry for children's below 15 years old (but they give free printed tickets for kids too) Before going for the monument, just after ticket counter, there is an Archaeological museum which is closed on Fridays. In one ticket, you can visit monument, museum and the house of Sir John marshall which is inside museum compound. Behind the museum, there is a free washroom, and near the museum, there is free chilled drinking water facility where you can fill water bottles before going for the monument which is around 1km hill hike away.
At the museum, we learned how this monument found and rebuilt later in coming years. After visiting the museum and Sir John marshall's house, we proceeded to the Buddhist monument. On a top hill (monument area) there is a canteen where you can have food, but we had packed food which we had under a tree which was outside of the monument compound.
Monument was very well maintained and the best time to visit is evening. There is a free chilled drinking water facility with free washroom. We walked up to the hill using steps, however, if you have a vehicle, you can take it on top of the hill. Do not forget: If you found this review helpful, please click THANK below.
