world pictures Peninsular India: Sanchi

We've come around to the southwest corner, and you can see some other features.   Above the dome, there's a parasol (chhatra) atop a square pavilion (harmika) formed by a balustrade (vedika).  There are two other vedikas at the base, one on top of a reinforcing terrace (medhi) whose weight helps keep the structure from spreading, and another on the ground.  Both were used by worshippers following a clockwise processional pathway or pradakshina patha.
