Sarnath Tour

By Roobaroo Walks
The story of how a simple, yet profound, epiphany of an inquisitive explorer became the guiding light for 500 million people in today's world is a fascinating one. And what better place to relive the tale than where he himself set the wheel of Buddhism in motion about 2,500 years ago! Join us as we explore the ruins of the first Buddhist monastic system, the Dhameka Stupa where Buddha preached his first sermon, marvel at the gleaming Lion capital which is now India's national emblem and visits peaceful Buddhist temples. Connecting the dots at these places, we will also understand how a decadent Prince Siddhartha became the enlightened Buddha and used some fine entrepreneurial skills to spread his wisdom!

Aayush was unbelievable. Incredibally nice, knowledgeable, and a great tour guide. Have toured with him for four years and will use him yearly when we visit Varanassi.

I have been to close to 70 countries. Simply put, Aayush is the single best guide I have ever had. All the seasoned travelers in my group agreed. His intelligence, wisdom, passion and joy are unmatched. Highest recommendation.

Very nicely curated tour. The guide - Mr. Anupam - was knowledgable and provided a very informational experience. It is clear that a lot of planning and preparation has gone into the walk and the sequence of places visited. An additional plus is that Anupam is a great photographer and took excellent photos of my wife and I - he knew all the right spots and angles and we have come away with a great set of memories of our visit.

All India is full of history, of course, but the chance to be at the very place were Budha first taught after his enlightenment, is something special, regardless your own religion. If you combine this experience with a passionate storyteller like Anupam, then the whole thing goes to a level to remember. He walked us through the site, he explained the meaning and the holiness of the place and he even helped us afterwards with our train trip from Varanasi.
