... an hour away. We went in a taxi organised by the hotel. Sarnath is where Buddha allegedly gave his first teachings and it was full of Buddhist pilgrims. It is a very peaceful place it has archeological ruins, a massive stupa, a massive statue of Buddha with triple jointed fingers and a 'wildlife' park with deer, birds, crocs and other animals.
