The serenity of Buddhism has spread universally. For the devout, a journey to Rajgir, Bodhgaya, Sarnath & Varanasi is nothing short of a moving pilgrimage in the foot steps of the Buddha. Buddhism has inspired one of the most dynamic art & architecture movements of the world. The eight events which are repeatedly represented in Buddhist art, are associated with Lumbini his birth place, Bodhgaya where he attained enlightenment, Sarnath his first sermon, Rajgir where he tamed a wild elephant Sravasti-a great miracle, San kasya, where he descended from Heaven & Kushinagar where he died.

The view from our balcony in room # 409, was terrific. It was centrally located to everything on and around the port area. Wonderful service and everything was very clean. The breakfast was below average, although not bad. If back in Zante Town we would stay there again.

It is close to everything but if you go in the lower season the pool won't be ready even though the temperature was quiet high already.
