Deer Park
One of the most important pilgrimage sites for Buddhists all over the world is the Deer Park of Sarnath. Sarnath derives its name from Sarangnath or the Deer God. It is believed that the Deer Park at Sarnath is the place where Lord Buddha gave his first sermon or proclaimed Dharma and the original Sangha was created. The history of this holy site dates back to 528 BC and according to Huien Tsang, the famous Chinese monk and world traveller, the deer park was developed by the Jataka King of Benaras. It is a huge enclosure created for deer to roam around freely. The place is blessed with a large variety of birds as well. For all those seeking solitude and peace away from the hectic lifestyles of modern times - this is indeed a heavenly place. Nestled in the midst of tranquil surroundings with an equally pleasing and cool atmosphere and dotted with exquisite gardens and the relics of Buddhist monasteries and stupas, this deer park is most certainly one of the main attractions of Sarnath.
