- Located on a 13 km drive from the centre of Banaras is the Dhamek Stupa. It was built in 500 CE by the great Mauryan king, Ashoka.
The Dhamek Stupa is said to mark the spot where the Buddha gave the first sermon to his first five brahmin disciples after attaining enlightenment, "revealing his Eightfold Path leading to nirvana". If you plan to visit Sarnath on hot summer like us, keep the change ready with you as you will have to make multiple stops on the way to hydrate yourself from masala soda to khatta meetha chuski.
However a walk down the garden and other excavation such as Asoka Pillar and the sight of peacock outside the boundary wall makes it a must visit for all who travels to the land of spiritually - Varanasi,Uttar Pradesh.
