  • Little elephant cut into the single rock with the edict below takes your memory back to 2300 years. Place is clean and lies at the base of Dhauli Sthupa.

  • We entered this place with great hope to be able to see the actual rock edicts, however luck did not favour us. We assumed the edicts were behind a large slope of land and walked up there to find a well maintained garden. Later did we realise that the rock edicts are kept away in some small corner in a glass house after we came back from a walk around that garden. By that time we were already exhausted. The garden otherwise is a beautiful landscape and a treat to the eye.
  • You will delight to see rock edicts more then two thousand years old for the establishment of world peace .
  • Edicts are written in the Prakrit language using the Brahmi script.
  • Must visit this historical place .
  • Beautiful park. The rock edicts are locked in a glass house, ask for assistance if you want to see all.
