At a place called Sarnath close to Varanasi is the most famous Buddha stupor.
This is the pace where the Buddha preached his first sermon after obtaining elightment. See a full description of this and all the site history here.
A view of the stupa across the site.
This is the lawn in front of the stupor where the Buddha sat to give his first sermon. It has been a life long hope of mine that at some point in my life I could be in this place and sit where the Buddha sat. A very special, emotional and spiritual moment for me.
This very impressive statue of the Buddha is set in these beautiful gardens. The next picture shows the information board for the statue.
