The Srilankan temple, where whole life of Lord Buddha has been painted on the walls, will leave you mesmerized. Deer park & 80 feet tall image of Buddha all provide a real peaceful atmosphere to be the place of meditation and deserves the compassion of Buddha.
This small town is enshrined with numerous temples from all those different countries which follow Buddhism by-en-large. So, to experience the aura of enlightenment & compassion of Buddha, Sarnath is a perfect destination for you.
