    Amazing feeling to see something so aged and see the priceless words of wisdom. Loved all the edicts but the first one the most- it is so good to see that animals were top priority so many years back....  more »

    Ashokan Rock Edicts are a piece of history. But it does not feel anything special to look at those. Normally, to protect the edicts they have made glass walls across it. But you can ask the guard to open the gates to see those closes without any obstructions. It's good to take photos near the elephant statue on the top of the edicts. Also, it's cool to rest on the bench under the banyan tree. If not visiting under hot sun, can walk in the park.
