Dhamek Stupa Sarnath Uttar Pradesh : Dhamek stupa is one of the oldest buddhist structures in India. Situated in Sarnath of Uttar pradesh; this ancient monument was built in 500 CE. The idea of building this stupa came from the great king Ashoka. I was in Varanasi so I decided to check it out and I must say that the experience was worth it.
