There are few places to be enlightened and this time I chose Bodhgaya. This was the moment when I was away from my day-to-day hassles and everyday’s hurdles when everything literally seems challenging. But things in Bodhgaya are relaxing and fulfilling as it gives a sense of relief and solace to the whole being. My first stop was Mahabodhi temple,... More

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
