Amazing visits to numerous temples. The only place you're not asked for money. It's good to go with a guide that has some knowledge about this place. It makes the outing more meaningful. Really loved the calm, laid back feel to Sarnath.

We can see Buddha temple, the stupa, and few destroyed structures here. The buddha statue is very big. We can spend half day here but not advisable in the afternoon as its very hot. Plan for morning or evening after 3 if you are visiting in summer.

Beautiful place with an awe inspiring history! Ensure that you dont miss the musuem, smallish but amazing collection! We had to go to Sarnath twice as the first time we went was on a friday and the musuem was closed.
