Pillar 25 at Sanchi was built during the Sunga period and it stands a little to the south of Stupa 5 and is 4.6 metres high. Its shaft is octagonal below and sixteen-sided above. The capital consists of a bell-shaped elongated lotus, surmounted by a deep, square abacus carved with a balustrade in relief. The crowning member has disappeared. The fragmentary inscription, assignable to the fifth century AD, was incised long after its erection.
