About Tibetan Refugee Market

Tibetan Refugee Market is the best place to buy a souvenir in Bodhgaya. Located in the heart of the town, this market is a colorful display of woolen wears, Buddhism souvenirs and various artifacts and accessories. A visit to this market is never boring, and it is not complete without buying something from here. One can spend a couple of hours by just looking at various handicraft articles of the Tibetan faith. The statues of Lord Buddha are available in materials like sandalwood or metal and various poses. All the shops are mostly run by people belonging to Tibetan culture. Everyone has a small stall or a makeshift shop with various articles at the display to lure the shoppers. Bargaining with the shopkeepers is a fun activity that both the sellers and buyers enjoy. The articles that are commonly sold here include souvenirs representing Buddhism, woolen wear, statues of Lord Buddha and various accessories.

Historical Context: In a town which is dominated by Budhha's legacy, Refugee Market is one such place from where you can literally take home buddhist culture with you.
