The visit had quite a calming effect. I'm not the kind of a person who is easily moved but 15/20 minutes at the temple really put us at peace. The head priest spoke for some time and you could feel his aura. Must go!!

Very peaceful location, with beautiful murals inside the shrine. The best part was the lack of push for religious rites to be performed or money to be handed over, including camera fees ;) The outdoors are very well maintained and serene.

This is a very peaceful place that one can visit for some time of tranquility. The temple is located amidst a beautifully maintained garden. Do visit if you are coming to Sarnath.
