1) Chaukhandi Stupa

Chaukhandi Stupa

This is an iconic location. After all, this stupa marks the very spot where Lord Buddha first met his disciples after achieving moksha. This is where he shared with them the teachings of Dhamma – and his disciples then shared his teachings with the whole world.

This stupa was constructed in the 5th century. It is not just a symbol of profound religious and historical importance but also a key destination for Buddhist pilgrims. Visitors from all around the world come to witness its grandeur. So it goes without saying that you cannot afford to miss out on it; it is also an excellent place to start your journey.

2) Ashoka Pillar

Ashoka Pillar

As can be understood just from the name – it is the world-famous Ashoka Pillar that stands tall at 50 meters. Established by King Ashoka during his reign, this symbol is India’s national emblem.

Sculpted gracefully from a single piece of rock, the pillar offers a truly awe-inspiring sight. And while you might have seen pictures of this, the real thing is a sight-to-see to genuinely comprehend its beauty.

3) Thai Temple

Thai Temple

Undoubtedly among Sarnath's top tourist highlights, the Thai Temple showcases the exquisite Thai architectural style. Situated amidst lush gardens adorned with statues, it oozes an atmosphere of serenity and tranquillity – that is hard to find anywhere else, especially in such a populous state.

You will also likely witness Buddhist monks in devotion, immersed in their daily rituals here – it is a common site here. Many of these monks would be ready to impart their wisdom to travelers such as yourselves at any moment – take advantage of that.

4) Tibetan Buddhist Temple

Tibetan Buddhist Temple

Tibetan Buddhist Temple is another site that you would regret missing out on. Richly embellished with Thangka, which are intricate Buddhist artworks, this temple offers a serene environment for introspection to the visitors. This temple houses the Shakyamuni idol.

Scattered throughout the temple grounds are prayer wheels, each holding sacred inscriptions, which only add to the temple's spiritual ambiance.

5) Archeological Museum

Archeological Museum

The final stop on your one-day tour is the Archeological Museum. Established in 1910, this museum is a treasure trove, brimming with a myriad of significant historical artifacts. Here, you can find precious relics ranging from the 3rd to the 12th century. The museum doesn't just preserve objects; it encapsulates the essence of Indian traditions, allowing visitors to journey back in time.
