Correct Answer - Option 3 : 3

3 is NOT correct.

  • The pillar at Sanchi also has a similar but damaged four-lion capital.
  • There are two pillars at Rampurva, one with a bull and the other with a lion as crowning animals.
  • Sankissa has only a damaged Elephant capital, which is mainly unpolished, though the abacus is at least partly so. No pillar shaft has been found, and perhaps this was never erected at the site. Hence 3 is not correctly matched.
  • The column at Lauriya-Nandangarh, 23 km from Bettiah in West Champaran district, Bihar has single lion capital.

 

The table below is correctly matched:

Ashokan Pillar

Capital

Sarnath

Four lions

Rampurva

Bull

Sankissa

Elephant

Lauriya Nandangarh

Lion
