About Dhamek Stupa

Dhamek Stupa, in Archaeological excavated site, is the most remarkable structure at Sarnath. 28 metres in diameter at the base and 43.6 metres in height this cylindrical structure is built partly of stone and partly of brick. The stone facing the lower part is adorned with delicate floral carvings of Gupta origin. Dhamek Stupa is one of the most frequented attractions of the town as it was built to commemorate Lord Buddha's first sermon to five of his disciples.
