DEMOCRATIC HERITAGE - ROCK EDICTS
We would love to hear from you
   
   
 


The testimony of Ashoka’s vision is found in magnificently sculpted pillars and boulders with a variety of Ashoka’s actions and teachings. These edicts are found scattered in more than 30 places throughout India and adjoining countries. The edicts proclaim Ashoka's reforms and policies, and promulgate his advice to his subjects. These edicts offer us insights into a powerful and capable ruler's attempt to establish an empire on the foundation of righteousness, a reign which makes the ethical and moral life of his subjects its primary concern.

The exhibit shows recreated sculpting of the Girnar inscription.
