About bodh gaya

Bodhgaya is a serene township on the banks of the River Falgu in India and revered by Buddhists all across the world. It is the city where the founder of Buddhism, Gautama Buddha meditated, preached and attained enlightenment, under the famous Bodhi Tree. The Mahabodhi Temple which houses the Bodhi Tree draws hordes of visitors across the world. The place emanates an aura of enduring serenity, spiritual solitude, and supreme peace. \r\n\r\nBodhgaya is one of the most important places in the world where devout Buddhists congregate and celebrate Buddha Purnima, in the glory of birth and enlightenment of Gautama Buddha. Another notable event is the Nyingma Monlam Chenmol festival, celebrated for world peace. The city is a sheer delight for history aficionados and those seeking spiritual enlightenment. The Thai Monastery, Indosan-Nippon Japanese Temple, Archaeological Museum, etc. are some of the other attractions of this quaint city which the travelers often rave about. The town is home to dozens of Buddhist monasteries. One unique fact is that you can even get an accommodation in those monasteries and have a chance to come close to the day to day lives of the Buddhist monks.
