  • Beautiful park inside. Rock edicts of King Ashoka is preserved here. We can also see a rock cut elephant behind it. There is a huge park behind it. It is just in front of Dhauli Shanti Stupa.
  • Ashok Shilalekh written in brahmi prakut script....enumerating various rules and regulation for people pertaining to dharma,politics,health,wealth,acharan etc.....beautiful....but one must have to visit ashik shilalekh found at Junagadh Gujarat,which is bigger and certain
  • This is a historical place with India's first rock cut elephant carvings from emperor ashoka's time in 3rd century B.C. the kalinga rock edict are written in Brahmin script, asoka gives a message wishing peace for all humanity.
  • Rarest of rare place.Must see place . About 280 BC rock edicts written of the Great King Ashok. You feel the time when you see this. The place is properly mantained , well occupied with a small garden , drinking water facility . You can take beautiful pics with old banyan tree .
  • Rich tales on history, natural scenery and most importantly the good conditions of the rock edicts that you can see till now very clearly.. Enjoyed being there
