Owner description: The Dhamekha stupa and other imposing structures adorn this holy site where Buddha first preached his message.
Reviewed 15 August 2018

Went there for sometime. I wish I had more time to be there. There are multiple places to visit. Dhamek stupa is major attraction. You need to buy ticket of Rs 25 to get entry there. The place is under ASI maintenance. Nearby museum has Ashok ki Laat placed inside. If you want to see it, make sure you are not there on Friday. Museum is closed on Fridays. Adjacent to Dhamek stupa is Jainism temple. Another Buddhist temple is nearby as well. There are couple of temples build by Thailand and Tibetan governments. Peaceful place over all. Go there if you have about 3-4 hours. Cameras are allowed.

One the very famous Bhudha Shrine and museum apart from many other relics belonging to period related to Great King Ashoka. The museum is also good and hold many rare artifacts and sculptures apart from having A Ashoka Pillar.

Excellent spot to get away from the crowds near the Ghats. I recommend a local tour guide that will cover the necessary information about Hinduism and Buddhism.
