Hey friends, as shared in my previous Varanasi blog, on my last day, I had my flight back to Delhi in afternoon. I woke up early and managed a small tour to Sarnath, as it is only 10 km away from Varanasi. I visited the park where Gautama Buddha first taught about Dharma to his first five disciples. Then I visited the famous Dhamek Stupa and the ruins around the Stupa. Also visited the nearby archaeological museum. It was amazing to see how we are culturally so rich and there are still so many unexplored places to visit within India.

Then I visited to Dhamek Stupa, where the ruins were still stored from the time of Ashoka.

Later I visited the nearest museum, it had all the stored artefacts. Also, it had our National Emblem the 4 sided lions famously know as the Ashoka Pillar.
