What you'll do

We will met at a pre-decided spot and drive to Sarnath which is approximately 15 kilometers out of Varanasi. Visit Sarnath, one of the important Budhist centres. It is the site where Lord Buddha had preached his first sermon or in religious language, set in motion the Wheel of Law (Dharmachakra-Pravarttana) enshrining the principles of his teaching into laws. At Sarnath, Lord Buddha also laid the foundation of Sangha or the order of monks. Sarnath remained an active center of Buddhism up to the end of the twelfth century. Centers of learning arose and many sects and sub-sects flourished here, until the Moslems plundered and raised it to the ground.

What's included

One bottle of mineral water per person along with a cup of tea.
