Sanchi, the ancient Sangharama (in district Raisen, Madhya Pradesh,) well-known for its magnificent Buddhist edifices - stupas, temples, monasteries and memorial pillars, has been attracting the attention of the art lovers and the archaeologists alike ever since its rediscovery by General Tylor in 1818.

The book recounts the contemporary life reflected in the Sanchi sculptures. The architecture, mode of dress, coiffure, personal ornaments, the weapons of war revealing the high-class military life, the musical instruments be speaking the civilized mind of the people, have all been brought within the compass of sculptural art. This richly illustrated work projects an in-depth, authentic account of Sanchi's material culture.
