Explore Sarnath and its archeological ruins
Buddha gave his first sermon at Sarnath, which is just around 25 minutes from the resort. The resort staff will provide you with a cab and take you around the Dhamekh Stupa and the archaeological ruins for a complete tour. Also visit the Archaeological Museum for a deeper understanding of the place and its connection with Buddha.
How to get there
By air: Taking a flight to Varanasi's Lal Bahadur Shastri International Airport is the best way to get to the resort. Airlines from most major cities fly to Varanasi. The property is around 20 minutes/11km away from the airport. The resort staff will arrange a car to pick you up from there.
By train: Trains to Varanasi's three stations run from all major Indian cities. You can either head to the Varanasi Junction or Varanasi Cantt Railway Station, which is 45 minutes away from the resort, or the Varanasi City railway station, which is 25 minutes away. Manduadih station in the city, which is where the popular Shiv Ganga Express ends, is another option.
By road: Varanasi is connected to Delhi, Kolkata, Agra and Kanpur by National Highway 19. So take a road trip to the resort, if you are up for it.
