Dhamekh Stupa in Sarnath

Dhamekh Stupa marks the place where Buddha gave his first sermon after attaining enlightenment. While nearby Varanasi is flooded with Hindu tourists, mostly from within India, Sarnath receives a smaller but steady flow of pilgrims from around the rest of Asia.

Some walk around the stupa, while other groups pray in the shadow of the large unfinished brick monolith.
