Yes, this site is BangaloreCaptured, but then I thought to put each and everything which is useful, interesting and delighted. This is a report of the land of enlightenment – Bodh Gaya.   In 2002, Mahabodhi Temple, located in Bodh Gaya, became a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

It is believed that 250 years after the Enlightenment of the Buddha, Emperor Asoka visited Bodh Gaya. He is considered to be the founder of the original Mahabodhi temple. It consisted of an elongated spire crowned by a miniature stupa and a chhatravali on a platform.

Please enjoy some of the pictures and share your comments.
