Sarnath is one of the four sacred places associated with Buddha Sakyamuni. Here in the Deer Park Buddha around 530 BC I read his first sermon in which he formulated the Four Noble Truths. Sarnath is the place of pilgrimage for Buddhists all over the world.

The town is located about thirty kilometers from Varanasi, and the traveler is not too difficult to get here from the most sacred Hindu city. The main attractions of Sarnath are Dhamekh Stupa and the Bodhi tree, which was transplanted in 1893 from wood in Anaradhapure in Sri Lanka, which also has been cultivated from the Bodhi tree under which Buddha attained enlightenment.

Right next to the ruins of Sarnath is a small archaeological museum, which is not the impression made on me. Currently, Sarnath is in ruins, which left behind the Muslim Turks. Most surviving structure is a stupa Dhamek.
