About Ashoka Pillar
The Ashoka Pillar is located very close to the Southern Gateway of the Great Stupa and is popular for the structural balance and aesthetic proportions. The pillar is built in the Greco Buddhist style and is beautifully carved.
The pillar has a dazzling polish that still glitters to this day. The pillar crown can be seen in the museum apart from other artefacts of ancient times. Ashoka Pillar looks quite similar to Sarnath Pillar with the only difference being the lions without the Dharmachakra.
