Gaya (Bihar) is famous for offering last prayers with rituals for departed souls as per Hindu Mythology. I along with my wife and brother-in-law (mr. & mrs) visited this place on 8-9 Sept. 2015 and were very much satisfied with the Panda (priest-pandit) who performed the pooja (prayer) very peacefully and systematically. We came from Puri by train to Gaya... More

Through known person, I could get connected with Arun Acharya, the Purohit based at Gaya. Though his origin is Telugu, he heard all my requirements in advance and then he indeed took care of almost every point, leading to a mental satisfaction of having performed the Shraththam for my father. He got this done through other purohit. No challenges. Barring... More

The place is important for hindus for pind daan .But the local pandits act as lootera .They are not interested in your sorrow or feeling. Money is the only matter for them .BEWARE BEWARE of these.

At each & every step u have to keep shellin out money. they will take you to different temples & spots for performing rituals & you have to keep spending. so... More

It is a city where PINDA DAAN ritual to be performed to the members of the family who passed away. If we do pinda daan in GAYA, the spirts of those members will get MOKSH. Also around 5-10 kms distance BODH GAYA Is there, where Gautam Budha got GYANODHAN under the Bodhi Tree. One must visit that also.
