Le stupa du Gandhara, immense reliquaire de pierre autour duquel les fidèles déambulaient en récitant des prières, affectait la forme d'un dôme disposé sur une terrasse. Aux quatre coins s'élevaient quatre colonnes supportant chacune la statue d'un lion. Le décor surabondant de la terrasse empruntait à la double source de l'art méditerranéen et de l'art indien. En témoignent les chapiteaux corinthiens exposés ici : dans la corbeille surgit un buste de Bouddha entre les rinceaux.
