His Holiness visits the Mulagandha Kuty Temple which has the relic of Lord Buddha at 9:30 am. The in charge of Temple Ven Sumedha-Thero welcomed him at the Temple gate and escorted inside, where he made short prayer. Ven Thero presented an image of Buddha to His Holiness.

After visiting the temple, His Holiness spends some time at the nearby Archeological Museum of Saranath where he observed the Archaeology, art and architecture. The head of the museum Mr. Ajay gave details to most of the Buddhist antiquarian remains. This museum consists of significant Indian monuments such as its National emblem.

Saranath is the place where Lord Buddha preached his First Sermon and laid the foundation of his Sangha.

His Holiness appreciated the introduction of the Archeology and returned back to Vajra Vidhya monastery.
