The Sanchi stupas are mainly three in number. The Great Stupa or Stupa 1 is the oldest stupa of the three. It was constructed by the great Emperor Ashoka in the 3rd century BCE. It is built over the relics of Lord Buddha and is considered to be the oldest stone structure of the country. The Chhatra is a parasol like structure over the nucleus of the stupa, resembling high rank as acting and acting as a shade. The four gateways of the stupa are known as torans; these are carved with Jataka tales, the stories related to the previous lives of Lord Buddha. These four entrances are symbols of harmony, affection, bravery and faith.
The second and third stupa had been built in the 2nd century BCE, during the rule of the Sugnas. These are less decorated and do not have gateways. The second stupa is carved with human figures with fish tails, birds with human heads, holy spirits like yakshas and yakshis and human figures with elephant heads. The wheel of Dhara is also believed to be constructed during this period. The wheel represents preaching of the first Sermon. The third stupa consists of two caskets, consisting the relics of the two great disciples of Lord Buddha, Sariputra and Mandgalyayana. The casket of Sariputra consists of two pieces of bone, some pearls, sandalwood and crystals. The other casket consists of a single piece of stone.
