It was said that lord Buddha attained wisdom under the Bodhi tree. I had a dream to sit under the holy tree. It was so cool during July summer.

An Experience of a lifetime

The inner sanctum of The Maha bodhi stupa is surreal.Once can just meditate there for hours even though so many people are doing their rounds of the stupa.Just to be in the very place where Lord Buddha attained enlightenment is enough to make it even more special.
The evening times were even more beautiful with the colorful lights on the stupa and the chanting of prayers.One can just get lost in time here with no thoughts and that is precious.
The only thing which can be changed is the guards whistle,which they blow to let people know that the timing of closing down the area is at hand.It is really disturbing and destroys the peace of the sanctum.

Seeking Buddha's blessings

Under this tree lies the spot where Gautam Budhha attained enlightenment. This is one of the holiest buddist places.
Keep in mind - parking can be an issue if travelling by own car.
The local handicraft market near the temple is worth visiting.

Most sacred place for Buddists
Dec 2019
Bodhi tree represents the place where Gautam Buddha attained enlightenment. This is the most sacred place for Buddhists. Both Maha Bodhi Temple and the tree behind the temple are very well maintained in spite of the big number of pilgrims visiting the place.

As Spiritual as you want it to be

The Bodhi tree. Which if course is not the original, but is only the second and is some 700 years old. I expected to feel nothing but I did get a bit of, I don't know. Spirituality? The Temple is also nice and couched in a pretty dirty little town
