Sarnath is the place where Lord Gautam Buddha, who is called the light beam of Asia, gave knowledge to someone for the first time. Sarnath is a place located 10 km northeast of Varanasi near the confluence of the Ganges and Varuna rivers in Uttar Pradesh, India. The Deer Park at Sarnath is where Gautama Buddha first taught the Dhamma, and where the Buddhist sangha came into existence through the enlightenment of Kondanna.
