A beautifully maintained and peaceful garden and stupa. Not often included on tours but worth going to see.

We chose at random some of the places of interest mainly keeping in mind the time constraint. One needs to revisit these two places time and again.

the stupa can be seen in the background of the garden, since i had kids with me i spent some time at this garden which is very clean and green. Good for kids to run around.

India in general seems to thrive on being continually moving. This garden is clean, pleasant, quiet and free with charmingly simple signs of Buddhist concepts. An oasis when things seem overwhelming.

Very well maintained beautiful garden. Nicest place in India that I have been to. The verses on stone are powerful words of wisdom. Thank you to the people who maintain it.

We fell in love with this place! It's an extremely beautiful garden, full of wisdom and tranquility, in the middle of somewhat chaotic Sarnath. Favorite spot!
