Praying towards the Dhamekh Stupa at Sarnath, Uttar Pradesh, India. Sarnath is one of Buddhism's four main holy sites as it's there that Gautama Buddha gave his first sermon. Sarnas became an important Buddhist centre with many stupas and monasteries built in the 3rd to the 6th centuries. However, Sarnath was sacked in the 12th century and the site subsequently plundered for building materials. Although only ruins are now left, the site still draws many devout pilgrims.
