Sarnath Things to Do: 65 reviews and 123 photos

 
 

Deer Park is the area where Buddha first taught his Buddha Dharma. Another name for this park is Isipatna or seers landing. It lies just behind Mulagandha kuti Vihara. The park is also sacred to the Jains as being the birthplace of the 11th Jain Tirthankar Shyeyanshnath. As far as I can work out Deer Park is also known as Archaeological Park where the ruins of monasteries lie as well as the significant Dhamekh stupa.
