Bodhgaya Temples



Bodhgaya was the place where Sidhartha Gautam attained enlightenment and became the Buddha. The place is located about 96 km from Patna, the capital of Bihar. The most valued place here is the Mahabodhi temple where Buddha sat down to meditate to get enlightenment. Also, alongside the temple is the holy Bodhi tree on the western side.
The Mahabodhi temple is made of bricks. In fact it is the oldest brick structure in eastern India. The temple was renovated in the 19th century and currently has been made a UNESCO World Heritage Site and also is nominated for the international World Heritage program. Also, there is the Jewel Walk which leads to Animeshlocha Stupa from the north-east of the Mahabodhi temple. It is said that after attaining enlightenment, Gautam Buddha walked too and fro on this path.
