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.
