The crown of the Ashoka Pillar is an asset to the Indians, because it bears the statue of Four Lions that are aced back to back which is now National Emblem of India. The shaft of the Asokan Pillar is clearly visible from a distance but the crown has been kept in the Museum. It however does not hold the Dhammachakra, or the Wheel of Law, but it is worthwhile to mention that the Ashoka Pillar has great resemblance to the Pillar at Sarnath. The Ashoka Pillar emblematizes majesty and elegance, power and order.
The Buddhist vihara at Sanchi, famous for its Great Stupa is located at Sanchi Town. The Great Stupa at Sanchi is the oldest stone structure in India and was originally commissioned by the emperor Ashoka the Great in the 3rd century BCE. It's nucleus was a simple hemispherical brick structure built over the relics of the Buddha. It was crowned by the chatra, a parasol-like structure symbolising high rank, which was intended to honour and shelter the relics.
