Gaya Arrival In Gaya
Upon your arrival in the city of Gaya, you'll be transferred to the hotel where you'll freshen up for the day. In the meantime your breakfast is ready because your day ahead is going to be a busy one as you'll soon be off to some of the best known religious destinations of India in Bodhgaya.

Gaya, The Religious City
Gaya anyway is associated with the word pilgrimage in India as Hindus from all over the world congregate here to pay homage to their departed forefathers so that their souls may rest in peace. The services of the priests are also available for the purpose. Gaya and the nearby Bodhgaya have some of the most sacred Buddhist and Hindu shrines situated here.

Bodhgaya, The Place of Enlightenment
Bodhgaya is only 14 km away from the city of Gaya. This is the place where Siddharatha, prince of Kapilvastu, meditated under a peepal tree on the bank of Niranjana river for 49 days after which he attained enlightenment. Later on the place came to be known as Bodhgaya and the river was known as Phalgu. The peepal tree later came to be known as Bodhi tree. It is said that emperor Asoka also visited the place several times. The tourist inflow especially increases during the anniversary of Lord Buddha in May when the place turns into a festive city.

Bodhgaya Destinations
» Mahabodhi Temple - The most striking thing about the Mahabodhi temple is the vast image of Buddha which is installed here. The Mahabodhi temple is shaped like a pyramid which has a prayer on the first floor. The temple entrance is built in the South Indian style and there are four towers on the four corners of the temple. It is believed that the temple was first built by Asoka which was renovated later by Burmese Buddhists, General Cunninghum etc. The temple was renovated in recent times as well.
» Tibetan Monastery - It is a two storeyed structure which is located to the west of the temple. It has been built with attractive ornamentation and Lord Buddha is the presiding deity here.

» Surya Temple, Deo - It is about 20 km away from Gaya and is famous for being the site of Chhath Puja in November.

» Parasnath Hill - It is about 40 km away from, these are believed to be the earliest Buddhist rock cut caves. It is among the most sacred pilgrim centres for the Jains.

» Bodhi Sarovar - This is a pond which is located to the west of Bodhi temple. It is believed that before going for his meditation Lord Buddha took bath in the pond which later came to be known as Bodhi Sarovar.

» Bodhi Tree - It was under this tree that Lord Buddha attained enlightenment. It is considered very sacred for all the Buddhists of the world.
