Notes on the Geography of Great Mirror: Photo 25

world pictures Great Mirror

A thousand feet down the slope of the hill is Stupa 2, with relics of Buddhist authorities from the approximate time of Ashoka.  A sandstone relic casket, with the names and burnt bones of the teachers, was found inside the stupa by the British in the 1850s and is now in the British Museum.  The stupa is chiefly remarkable, however, for something you can't see from this distance.
