Sarnath Temple



Just 10 km from the pilgrimage of Varanasi is located probably the most naturally beautiful Buddhist pilgrimage called as Sarnath. The temple complex has many architectural monuments which are also a very important part of Buddhist and Indian history.
Lord Buddha came to Sarnath to look for his five companions who had abandoned him. This place has a very cool and calm atmosphere to it and many great teachers have given their valuable sermons here. Dhamekha Stupa is the most impressive structure in the complex which was built around 500AD. Then there is the Chaukhandi which was built to mark the meet of Buddha with his companions. The national emblem of India, the Asokan Pillar is also located in this temple complex. The Monasteries and the Digambar Jain Temple are also present in the complex and the former is also said to have original relics of Buddha.
