The serene garden well manicured and maintained is also the place where various relics were found by archeologists of buddhist living spaces etc. It is also the path to the buddhist stupa which is a must visit place too.

A temple of silence, a place of quiet amidst the busyness of Indian life in Sarnath.After visiting the beautiful Archeological museum and seen radiating Buddha statues, I recommend a plunge into the peace of this garden.
