Buddhist Stupa Site, Mansar
The Vakatakas belongs to the political scene of Ancient Indian History. The rulers were great patrons of art, sculpture and cultural enhancements. Their interest in carving out the cultural scene of their time is seen in the many stupas, rock architectural pieces and Buddhist remains seen at Mansar. Walk around this Maharashtrian region to feel as opulent as a ruler must have felt stepping into high-ceilinged halls.
