Where to stay in Bodh Gaya

Visitors to Bodh Gaya have a wealth of accommodation options to choose from, because of its dual status as a tourist attraction and a place of pilgrimage. Close to the main temple and park, a number of guesthouses provide comfortable rooms for good rates, as do different monasteries offering lodgings for a donation. Some more upmarket options, including hotels with fancy restaurants and themed rooms, tend to lie to the west, where the town opens up a little.
