We enjoyed the Mulagandha Kuti Vihar Temple, with the historical Buddha's first sermon depicted by a sculpture and translated into numerous languages (including English).
The place is having serene and peaceful surroundings. Sarnath Museum is a must visit for all History lovers. Remember that the museum is open on office days from 10AM to 5PM only.
This is one of the most important Buddhist centres located 10km from Varanasi. It is where Buddha preached his first sermon. In the 3rd century BC, Emperor Ashoka build stupas (mould like structures containing Buddhist relics and ashes) and monasteries here.
It infact symbolises sarnath.A gupta period stupa.about a hundred yards away from this stupa was another stupa,the dharmrajika stupa constructed in maurya period is now destroyed by deewan of kashi naresh.one of the holiest structure for budhists.
Sarnath is a wonder in itself. The engineering and drainage system of this ancient township will make you speechless and this is something which will make you really proud of your ancient heritage. Every Indian should visit.
