Tour description provided by Viator

The story of how a simple, yet profound, epiphany of an inquisitive explorer became the guiding light for 500 million people in today's world is a fascinating one. And what better place to relive the tale than where he himself set the wheel of Buddhism in motion about 2,500 years ago! Join us as we explore the ruins of the first Buddhist monastic system, the Dhameka Stupa where Buddha preached his first sermon, marvel at the gleaming Lion capital which is now India's national emblem and visits peaceful Buddhist temples. Connecting the dots at these places, we will also understand how a decadent Prince Siddhartha became the enlightened Buddha and used some fine entrepreneurial skills to spread his wisdom!
