DHARMARAJIKA stupa near Taxila Museum
One of my memorable visit to Dharmarajika, an archeological site situated about 2km from Taxila Museum. Its approximately 70 km away from Mardan city through M2 motorway. It is considered to be one of the best and the major tourist destination in Indian Subcontinent to travel and explore this archeological site.
The stupa is situated in a circular structure and is about 15 meter high, raised on a plate form. It is said to be built by Emperor Ashoka after his conversion to Buddhism.
The passage to the ruins at hillock from the main road is very fine and lush green with lots of trees and there seems to be a small stream from the old times of Ashoka, used to for water supply to the resident of the shrine and monastic area.
