The Bodhi tree is extremely serene and the place is charged up. Suggest to take precautions from mosquitoes. Wear full sleeves and some repellent lotion to enjoy the surrounding.

This is a part of the main temple and one could sit here for meditation. Monks all around would shape your morale accordingly if you wish to be a part of Buddhist practice.
