उत्तरी तोरण द्वार, साँची स्तूप /Northern Gate, Sanchi Stupa

9:37 PM / Posted by li i /

About 2500 years old, the main stupa at Sanchi is said to contain the relics of Siddharth Guatam, popularly known as Gautam "Buddha". Although many dynasties have added their own work over time, Ashoka of the Maurya dynasty had originally conceived the idea of building the stupas.

Above: One of the 4 gates to the main stupa at Sanchi. This, as the name suggests is the Northern Gate. This is also the most decorated as well as the most well preserved one.
The whole gate is divided into 22 sections with different carvings that depict various scenes. Example, Buddha leaving his home at Kapilvastu [not visible here though:)] etc.

Yachting or Luxury Boating whatever you may call it, is a Leisure Loved the World-over!.. Undoubtedly an Industrialist or even a small Business Magnet can decide to Own an average Yacht or Speed-boat, & the decision would Really be right if it was to be just Onetime Investment Without any After-investment Tensions..that too, when an Owner is known to be able to Use/Enjoy It totally 25 Days/Nights in an Year!!...
The Ownership Economic entails endless technical tensions of Man-management-n- Maintenance, Berthing & Insurance etc….
