The Dhamek stupa at Sarnath is a beautiful sight. It was built in 500 AD. and it is said to be built at the place where the Budhha first gave his sermon. At the bottom of the huge stupa, there are beautiful floral curvings on stone. There is also a stone slab with Buddhist inscriptions on it that dates back to the 6th century BC. The place around the Dhamekh stupa is very green and soothing.
