Varanasi is a junction for different cultures of the world. Besides Hinduism, it is also important for Buddhism and Jainism. Just at about 10 kilometers distance from this city, there is a small town of SARNATH, which is a very sacred place for Buddhist people. It is in Deer Park, where Buddha gave his very first sermon and if you are on time, you will also spot multiple deer. This walking tour will give you a chance to understand a philosophy that has left a great impact on the greater part of the world.
The tour guide will greet you at your hotel on your preferred time in Varanasi and drive you to the designated location where the walking tour will begin.
You will explore the town of Sarnath with your guide for the due course of time.
Sarnath is considered as the birth place of Buddhism. The deer park in Sarnath is where Gautama Buddha gave his first ever sermon, and first taught the Dharma, and where the Buddhist Sangha came into existence through the enlightenment of Kondanna. Sarnath also has the Dhamek Stupa which is said to mark the spot where the Buddha gave the first sermon to his first five Brahmin disciples after attaining enlightenment.
You will also visit the Sarnath Meuseum. It is the oldest site museum of Archaeological Survey of India. It houses the findings and excavations at the archaeological site of Sarnath.
Then you would be taken to the Garden of Spiritual Wisdom. Located behind the Chaukhandi Stupa, the garden uses a mix of exhibits and sculptures to convey the essentials of Buddhism and Indian spirituality. Its a picturesque garden which offers tranquil pathways amid lush surrounds & spiritual sculptures.
