Sarnath, Varanasi (Benares), India
Varanasi or Benares is not called the Holy city without reason. Many think it is only a Hindu City when history says otherwise. It is here that Sarnath where Lord Buddha delivered his first teachings. You can also get more details of Sarnath here.
By the way this is the orginal buggy of Maharaja of Benares, now with Taj Benares Hotel.
And here are today's "buggies" on the roads of Varanasi or Benares.
The Photos of Sarnath are in the slide show. But you need to have latest browser, java and something else (I am not sure what yet) to be able to see the slide show properly. Normally I suggest everybody should have Java Run Time environment, Macromedia, Shockwave, quicktime etc and one of this should take care (I say this because I have and am able to see the slide show)
