An old Buddhist story tells us the Bodhisattva is a deer and offers his life to the king. The king was planning to kill the doe for his feast. He was so moved that he created a park as a sanctuary for deer. Sarnath from Saranganath means “lord of the Deer”. Sarnath is a city located 13 kilometres north-east of Varanasi. It is near the confluence of the Ganges and the Gomati rivers in Uttar Pradesh, India. The deer park in Sarnath is where Gautama Buddha first taught the Dharma. This is where the Buddhist Sangha (society) came into existence

Manikarnika Ghat is the main cremation Ghat of Varanasi. Manikarnika Ghat is one of the oldest and most sacred Ghats in Benaras. According to the Hindu mythology, being burned here provides an instant doorway to freedom from the cycle of births and rebirths. It is believed Lord Vishnu meditated here for many years and left his footprints in a circular marble slab.

It was a joyous moment for Goddess Durga. She triumphantly killed the demon Shumba-Nishumba. And to mark her victory she threw her sword in the Assi River. The place where the sword fell resulted in a big stream, known as Assi River. This was then known as Assi Ghat.

The Durga temple was constructed in the 18th century by a Bengali Maharani but in a North Indian style. The temple has a rectangular tank of water called the Durga Kund meaning a pond or pool. The pond has stone stairs on all sides and a watch pillar at each corner. It has multi-tiered spires and is red in colour, representing the colour of Durga. The Kund was connected to the river thus the river was always replaced. This channel was later closed locking off the water supply. This is now replenished by rain water

The Ram Nagar Fort bears brilliant testimony of a civilisation that disappeared. The Moghul Empire. The building was constructed with creamy coloured chunar sandstone. It was built in typical Mughal style of architecture, with engraved balconies, open court yards and rotundas. The fort was built on high ground and is located near the Ganges River on its eastern bank. Kashi Naresh Raja Balwant Singh built it in 1750 and housed a Veda Vyasa Temple, and a residential complex. It also has a museum and a Dakshin Mukhi temple of Hanuman facing the south. The current king, Anant Narayan Singh is the Maharaja of Varanasi though the royal title has been abolished in 1971

The Bharat Mata Temple was built by Babu Shiv Prasad Gupta and inaugurated by Mahatma Gandhi in 1936. This is the only temple dedicated to Mother India and is within the campus of Mahatma Gandhi Kashi Vidyapeeth. This shrine houses a map of undivided India carved out of marble with plains, mountains, and oceans. Mahatma Gandhi hoped this temple would serve as a cosmopolitan table for all Indians. He did not want religions, castes and creeds, including Harijans to judge vision. The temple was to promote unity, peace, and love amongst Indians

Nepali architecture is a unique strain of art and pragmatism. Nepal is situated in between trade routes from India to Tibet and China. Therefore Nepali architecture has been influenced by these cultures. The Nepali Temple in Varanasi is a replica of the famous Pashupatinath Temple in Kathmandu. There is evidence to suggest that the land was actually transferred by the ruler of Varanasi to the Nepalese king back in 1843

Buddha delivered his first sermon in 528 BC at Sarnath which now has a museum dedicated to him. There is an excellent display of artefacts from the Maurayan era and Gupta era. The earliest image of Buddha is housed in this museum with other Hindu Gods and Goddesses. In 1904 the Government of India decided to construct this museum on site after excavating antiquities here. Sir John Marshall, the Director General of Archaeology of India and Mr. James Ramsone, his consultant, completed the museum in 1910. Archaeological museum in Sarnath has five big galleries and two verandas to show artefacts from 3rd century B.C. to 12th century A.D
