Sanchi Stupa is a Buddhist worshipping place that is located on a hilltop at Sanchi town in Raisen District of the state of Madhya Pradesh and famous for its great stupa. It is one of the oldest stone structured monument in India that was originally commissioned in the 3rd century BCE by emperor Ashoka. It has a simple hemispherical brick structure that built over the relics of the Buddha. The stupa is crowned like chatra and Parsol like structure symbolizing high rank that was intended to honor the Buddha relics. The Sanchi stupa that built of bricks during the Mauryan period is now a part new Rs 200 note along with 16 other features.

And soon RBI will issue ₹50 denomination banknotes with a base color of the note in fluorescent blue.
