Photographer's Note

Sarnath is the deer park where Gautama(the Buddha-to-be) Buddha first taught the Dharma, and where the Buddhist Sangha (association or community with common goal, vision or purpose) came into existence through the enlightenment. Sarnath is located 13 kilometres north-east of Varanasi, in Uttar Pradesh, India.

sarnath is mentioned by the Buddha as one of the four places of pilgrimage which his devout followers should visit, if they wanted to visit a place for that reason.

I think I did more pilgrimage for Buddhism than Islam which is my countries OFFICIAL religion.Dooes it really differ and matter ?
