This monastery is almost in square shape and an lively sign is that the stone walls are broadly layered of flat stone bricks, having an area of about 33 by 33 Sq Mtr.Main entrance is facing the East and having 22 small rooms, and four little large rooms in the west, verandahs and stone bricks paved court yard slightly lower than the verandahs. This courtyard might be open or and complete monastery might be having wooden roof and wooden pillars. A water pond before the entrance is situated at left side.Sanchi is a Buddhist monument and this monastery was a place of living of Buddhist monks under a religious bond. After completion of their training they were leaving to preach the Buddha's teachings among the peoples. For Buddhist this is considered a pilgrim and thousands of devotees and history lovers are visiting this monument.Visitors may find the great bowl close to the western wall on a platform and a pathway going down to Stupa No. 2 as Buddhism was a dominating religion in ancient India, and many of Buddhist temples, monasteries were destroyed after decline of Buddhism but Sanchi remain safe, as still many inscriptions illustrates the teaching of Buddha, though Buddhism almost disappeared from India.
