Best place, you will come to know about different art forms and sculptures. Buddhist and monks come here and enchant. Good place to worship and meditate.
gaya is my nani-ghar hence i have visited this place many times. bodhgaya is 10-15kms from gaya.the temples and places are nice built and kind of maintained from foreign funds but still the maintenance is quite low for a religious shrine. there are good hotels for stay and lunch/dinner but a bit dirty as rest of India. railway station at...

Unlike the other monasteries and shrines in Bodh Gaya where you can just walk in to visit, the Mahabodhi temple complex has 2 security screenings before you enter the temple. This is most likely due to the bombing incident this year in the temple complex. I am guessing it is also partly due to the undergoing renovation which would see... More
The Temple was well maintained and clean, very organised and there were no hassles at all to distract you from whatever it was you came for, be out sight seeing or prayer. ..peaceful surroundings. ..a gem in a chaotic city
you can feel the peace all around it....the banyan tree seems like epicenter of radiating that deep feeling of silence all around it.... I stay at gaya and go there almost every week......it helps to keep me grounded !!!!

The bodhi tree, surround walls of Buddha sculptors, makes you feel thoroughly enlightened. The offerings by Buddhists to lord buddha makes you feel that you have come to a foreign... More
This is a very well organized place. Complex is vast. Religious devotion is everywhere around the Temple. Go a little before Sunset or around sunrise when monks from all traditions chant. Guides are reasonably priced and well worth hiring. Downside for the squeamish - you have to walk around barefoot. Take a pair of white socks you don't mind throwing... More
One has to be in its premises to experience its magic. It’s actually where Buddha meditated and got enlightened. The place being popular with tourists also comes with a lot of beggars and vendors behind your back but if you ignore these little perks, the place is something different and is a best place to relax and maybe take upon...

It was unbelievably great location. the Maha Bodhi Tree, surrounding areas and the ancient culture surrounding it was superb. We maintained and looks like a place to be on everyone's calendar at some point of time in life.
Please visit the place at least once in your life time and you will experience the uplift. It is unexplainable. you should experience it.
