Being a major Buddhist pilgrim destination, Sarnath attracts visitors from across the globe especially from the Buddhist dominated countries such as Japan, Thailand and China. Most people from these countries have their temples here.
The Thai temple has been built by the Thai community and boasts an architectural style that is distinctively Thai. The temple itself is very colourful and is managed by the Thai Buddhist Monks. It is set in beautiful landscaped gardens and is a haven of peace and tranquillity.
