After 5 weeks of attainment of NirvanaLord Buddha came to Sarnath and started teaching the Pañcavaggiya monks who left him in Bodh Gaya before Lord Buddha attained “Enlightenment”. These five monks learned and understood about the Dharma in a short duration. It was the place where he first preached the Dharma to the Pañcavaggiya monks in the Deer park and started “Wheel of Dharma”.

In Deer Park, Lord Buddha first taught sermon in order to share his knowledge so that he could free all human beings out of their misery, pain, sufferings. The first suttas that Lord Buddha taught was Dhammacakkappavattana Sutta. But there are other different Suttas that were preached by Lord Buddha in Deer Park.
