About gaya

The ancient city of Gaya gets its name from the demon Gayasur - the holy demon. The story goes that Gayasur was killed by Lord Vishnu with his foot which led to the formation of the hills in Gaya. Gaya is 100 km south of the capital of Bihar, Patna and is the second largest city in the state. Gaya is a holy place for people of Hindu, Buddhist, Jain, and Islamic faith. \r\n\r\nInterestingly, the city of Gaya has a place called Bodh Gaya, which is 11km from here. Bodh Gaya is a world famous Buddhist pilgrimage site, where it is believed that the great Lord Buddha attained enlightenment under the Bodhi tree. Apart from places of religious importance, Gaya has got a lot more to offer in the form of ancient caves built way back in the 3rd century BC, lakes and museums. \r\n\r\nFoodies will find Gaya a delight, with several restaurants serving delicious Bihari food and mouth-watering sweets. Gaya is a place for those who want to get in touch with their spiritual self, and also for lovers of ancient architecture and nature.
