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.

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.
