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.

This place where Vishnu foot is prayed by people. They throng this place, which is in the banks of river falgu ... Where Lord ram performed Pind dhan.... Never tell them to do more formal Pooja... U may be asked to do for the same. This process will take at least 3 hours.. Keep it simple ....

This place is in total apathy. We have a lot of faith associated with this place but unfortunately it is being run very poorly. Urge the government to step in and make it neat and clean . Save the believers from touts and fraud.

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. It is the second... More

Gaya is extremely Holy place for offering of Pinds. Pinds are offered in personalised way on your behalf on the Foot print of Lord Vishnu, on Akshya Bot and beside the River Falgu maintaining proper Hindu religious customs.

Gaya, famous for Pind Daan, is located in Bihar State. It is about 250 Kms from Varanasi or Kashi. A temple dedicated to Vishnu Pada (Foot Print of Lord Vishnu) is located at Gaya. River Falgun flows at this place, but most of the time, there is no water. At times, it is difficult to wet your feet in the... More
