There is one single Gaya where we can see four religious faiths namely Hinduism, Islam, Buddhism and Jainism. It is place of super natural reality where we find the existence of four religious faiths in co-ordination and living with co-operation with one another for centuries. Gaya is an ancient historical and mythological city of much significance. Gaya city is located... More

Bodhgaya Multimedia Museum is located right next to the Mahabodhi temple in Bodhgaya. The Museum takes visitors back 2500 years to the age of Buddha. Visitors get to see the life of Buddha, story of the Bodhgaya temple, places of interest around Bodhgaya and Teachings of Buddha.

Give yourself time because its an intense educational crash courses at the tip of your finder. Security is always tight which means lockers are available for your cellphone and bags. I unfortunately wanted to use cell phone as camera big mistake hence no photos.

We could not find this museum for love nor money. We asked at the information desk (who sent us to the archaeological museum a km away) and also at the bookshop within the temple complex and he had never heard of it. Very disappointing as really wanted to go. They need to improve their signage - if they even still... More

this museum is the hard work of a technocrat. Through a multi media projector various aspects of Buddha life are demonstrating with narration of the story. One will flow with period of the story being shown. it is situated just at the entrance of Mahabodhi temple.

If you don't know the story of the Buddha then this is a curious computer genarated cartoon of his life which has him wandering Bihar state like a Terrhhawk Puppet! That is still manages to be emotionally moving is testament to the Buddha. You won't learn much about the Temple or it's renovation and history - a nice diversion and... More
