Columns (pillars) Ashoka — stone monuments in the form of freestanding vertical post mounted in the middle of the III century BC by order of the Indian king Ashoka in the key centres of Mauryan power. The inscriptions on the columns, is made on the deciphered brahmi and George. Principal in 1837, are the oldest examples of Indian writing. On the tops of the columns were originally placed sculptural groups with images of sacred animals. Also they are decorated with image of the wheel of Dharma and swastika.
Columns are divided into small and large; the latter are 12-15 meters in height and weigh about 50 tons. Better than the other tops remained the so-called lion capital in Sarnath, whose stylized image was declared in 1950, the national emblem of India. This capital was discovered in 1851 by British archaeologist A. Cunningham, who also owns the honor of the pillars in Sanchi. The hieratic images of animals in columns marked the influence of Achaemenid art. This is the most ancient masterpieces of Indian sculpture. To date, they are transferred to the museums, and the columns they replaced the copy.
