I have to say that Sanchi is one of the most peaceful and rich of history place. It's all about Buddhist history, culture and their architect, Even though Buddha never visited Sanchi (it might shock you)in his lifetime. If you are in Bhopal there are ample of options for traveling to Sanchi. It's around 40 KM from Bhopal and the approach road is very good and full of beautiful scenery. Also you can say that this place is situated at the out skirt of Bhopal. The site opens at dawn. The people renting the audio guides don't arrive until 8:30 AM. Try getting there early. By ten a lot of people start showing up including school groups and I think the noise detracts from the experience. When you are there early in the morning on top of that hill you can imagine the peaceful solitude that led Ashoka to choose this mount for a stupa and monastery. stupa is a great place to visit for history lovers. It is such a peaceful place, you really feel the effect when you go there. You get a good of view of city from the top of Stupa. Just read all the things which are written on the board. A great place to visit for travellers. Sanchi stupa is known for its outstanding specimen.The Stupas are Hemispherical domes. All n all I can say put this place in the list which you wanted to visit before you...

Beautiful, it gives great peace of mind, keep sometime to visit, we actually had to rush and finish within 1 hour as the closing time had come! But that was our fault. The place is very well maintained.

For Indians, who have all studied Sanchi Stupa in History books; its time to unlearn.
The Sanchi Stupa is much better and more impressive than the picture in books.

Signage to Sanchi Stupa is well marked.
Entry ticket to be purchased "below" ; prior to ascending the hill.
Pls note, vehicle parking off Stupa is free; hence DO NOT pay for same; whilst purchasing entry ticket for Stupa.
There is an incorrect ongoing practice regarding same.
Recommend to take a tour guide and/or use QR codes given on plaques.
Stupa at Sanchi are probably the oldest stone structures in India.

Stupas built by great Emperor Ashok.
