Site of Buddha’s First Sermon Buddhist Experience

Follow the steady stream of pilgrims into Sarnath, the site where Gautama Buddha delivered his first sermon and attained nirvana or enlightenment. 

Observe the crowd of worshippers and travellers throughout the ruins of the original monasteries and stupas. To discover more about this holy place, you’ll head into the Archaeological Museum where many relics are found, including the Ashoka Pillar, whose four lions were adopted as India’s national emblem.
