Location :
This town, in Bihar is at a distance of nearly 7 miles from the revered Hindu pilgrimage Gaya, which is 105 km from the state capital Patna.

What to see :
The Maha Bodhi temple:
the Maha Bodhi temple is one of the most sought after temples in Buddhism and represents the splendid and unique Buddhist culture successfully. The temple is huge and is recognized from far due to its 50-m high tower. Moreover, there are distinct Buddhist images sculptured on the walls which gives it a pristine religious look. Re built after being destroyed due to the Muslim invasion in India, the temple still houses some very ancient railings, which are held high in religious point of view.

The temple also serves as a link between Buddhism and Hinduism, and a Shiva Lingam inside the temple proves the fact. There is also a huge statue of Buddha in vajrasana Mudra that is very attractive.

Maha Bodhi TreeMaha Bodhi Tree :
The tree under which Lord Buddha had meditated while attaining enlightenment is also a major attraction to the Buddhist pilgrims. The tree is looked after well by the Buddhist monk's society and is considered very sacred. The leaves and branches of the tree are considered collectibles, but only when it is discarded by the tree itself.

Vajrasana :
"Asana" means seat and the place at which Buddha sat during his meditation under the tree is strictly preserved and revered by the Buddhists. The look of the seat creates a naturally respectful feeling in the mind due to its distinct appeal.

Chankaramana :
This place signifies the sacred meditative pre ambulations of Lord Buddha during the third week of his meditation while attaining enlightenment. Again, it has different and mystiques appeal to the devotee's eyes.
