Its nucleus was a simple hemispherical brick structure built over the relics of the Buddha. It was crowned by the chatra, a parasol-like structure symbolising high rank, which was intended to honour and shelter the relics. It has four profusely carved ornamental gateways and a balustrade encircling the whole structureThe festival of Chethiyagiri Vihara is celebrated in the month of November at Sanchi. Two relics of Gautam Buddha's early disciples are displayed as a part of the rituals of the festival.
