TOP BUDDHIST PILGRIMAGE SITES IN INDIA
THE BUDDHA PILGRIMAGE

India is one of the few countries where Buddhism
is practiced as a major religion. This can be due
to the fact that Gautama Buddha was born in
India, in the city of Lumbini, supposedly located
somewhere in the Northern part of India. A great
many tourists visit India every year for Buddhist
pilgrimage tours. While some come here seeking
spiritual enlightenment, others visit merely to
marvel at the medieval structures related to the
religion.

Buddhism is at the helm in certain cities in
India, viz. Varanasi, Bodh Gaya, Nalanda,
Kushinagar and Lucknow. These places not only
provide a spiritual retreat to the tourists, but
also offers them the opportunity to learn about
the diverse culture and traditions that India is
known for. A typical Buddhist pilgrimage tour
will comprise of activities such as sightseeing,
attending prayers and camps organized by Buddhist
monks, learning the Dharma from the high priest
and so on. Tourists can also treat themselves to
the sights of some of the most ancient monuments
and stapes of the country, some even belonging to
as early as 500 AD.

Sarnath in Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh is a hot site
for people seeking Buddhist pilgrimage in India.
It is a must visit for all Buddha devotees and
otherwise. This place is believed to have been
the home for Buddha and His followers during the
days when the former used to share his learnings
and helped people who came seeking answers to
their miseries. The deer park, which is a major
attraction here, was a gift from the King of
Kashi to Buddha.

Sarnath is popular for yet another historical
implication. The image of the four-headed lions
that we often see in government emblems has been
adopted from a stupa here the famous pillar of
Ashoka that we commonly know it as. It also
houses a museum with literature and artifacts on
Buddhism.
