Western Gateway - Sanchi Stupa - Madhya Pradesh - India

The Western Gateway upheld by pot-bellied dwarves delineates a portion of the most fascinating scenes. The top passage of the outer surface of the western door delineates Buddha spoke to in the manifestation of trees, the center opening portrays Buddha conveying a sermon, and the least one a Chhadanta Jataka scene.

The inner part of the center curve portrays the purported War of the Relics, and the lowest part one Mara's enticement of the Buddha, which happened just before edification.
