Skywatch Friday - Great Stupa @ Sanchi, India

We visited the World heritage Site @ Sanchi in Central India during our Grand road trip to Central India. 

This is a very serene and tranquil place on a small hillock near Bhopal, the capital of the State of Madhya Pradesh in Central India. Sanchi is famous for its famous stupas and ruins of Buddhist monasteries built around 3rd century BC by Mauryan kings. 

It was around mid day when we went there. The fall sky was clear but dotted by few clouds. The light red colour of the stupa was nice complement to the blue sky in the background.
