Buddhist Vihara in Sanchi is well worth a visit. Unlike the earlier viharas, this one is not carved out in wood. It was the principal residence of monks and has a central area dedicated for communal activities. The area is surrounded by small chambers wherein the monks can sleep individually.

Considered as one of the most important Buddhist centres, it is located a few kilometres from Sanchi. The remains of Satdhara Stupa can also be found here. Inside the vihara lies a glass chest on a platform, which houses many relics. This place is visited by thousands of devotees, who come here to get a glimpse of the Buddhist culture. People visit the Buddhist Vihara first before heading on to see the other viharas.
