Trip to Sarnath

Last week, we went as a family to Sarnath. This is the place where the Ashoka pillar was put up by Emperor Ashoka. It's also a pilgrim centre for the Buddhists. 

Snaps from the visit.

Huddled in front of the Buddhist temple (Mulagandhakuti Vihara)

Was trying to walk to the Dhamek Stupa. But this entrance was blocked ..  .. ..

In front of the broken pillar of the Ashoka Lion Head. The Lion Head can be seen at a nearby Sarnath Archeological Museum.

At last we got a snap of the Dhamek Stupa

Leaving the park. The archeological remains of Buddhist monasteries
