Sarnath

Mulagandhakuti Vihara, Sarnath TravelsTo the north of Varanasi, about four miles away, are the Buddhist remains of Sarnath or the ancient Mrigadava (Deer Park) where the Buddha delivered his first sermon after attaining enlightenment. It is one of the most important places on the Buddhist map of India. Sarnath has a covetable wealth in the form of religious tradition and archaeologists, historians and the students to this place, both from India and abroad.

Buddhists worldwide look upon India as the land of the Buddha and a visit to this country means a pilgrimage to those places sacred to the memory of the Enlightened One. After the Bouddha attained enlightenment in Bodh Gaya he came to Sarnath. Here in the Deer Park, he delivered his first sermon, or in religious language, set in motion the wheel of Law (Maha- Dharmachakra Pravartan). On the day before his death Buddha included Sarnath alongwith Lumbini, Bodh Gaya and Kushinagar as the four places he thought to be sacred to his followers.
