While visiting Varanasi, it's a must to dedicate at least half a day to visit the incredible Sarnath and its variety of Buddhist temples.

This is a very rewarding visit, for which a guide is an essential for a quality experience. Many of the iconic symbols of India found on its flag and currency originate from this place. To make the most of the visit, it is wise to spend time in the museum first so as to learn about the history of Buddha in India. This is not the rotund Chinese Buddha, but the man whose strange early life led to a life of a asceticism, prayer and meditation. The stupa (remains of a more magnificent construction) marks the spot where Buddha first taught his disciples and where the first monastery was founded. In the centre of the monastery is a raised area where King Ashoka believed he found the remains of Buddha. Even today, there is a sense of quietness about the site.
