Culture of gaya

The two prominent festivals celebrated in Gaya are the Gaya Pitru Paksha Mela and Buddha Purnima. In the Pitru Paksha Mela, devotees offer food to departed ancestors as a way of respect called Pind Daan, which is believed to be fruitful when performed in Gaya. Buddha Purnima marks the birthday of Buddha and is celebrated with pomp and includes prayer meetings, meditation, processions and reading of scriptures. \n\nLike most ancient cities, Gaya has a rich history of arts and crafts which continues to this day. The skilled artisans of Gaya are experts at crafting household products and religious offerings out of stone. Gaya has nearly 8,000 weavers as well as several household industries which craft beautiful handicrafts, incense sticks, printed textiles, and their designs mainly have a religious theme.
