Witness the offspring of the tree under which Lord Buddha attained enlightenment at Bodhi Tree. The sacred fig tree has been destroyed and replanted time and time again over the course of thousands of years, most recently in 1811. Relax and take in the serene and spiritual atmosphere, surrounded by meditating monks and devotees on pilgrimage. Keep in mind that you'll have to remove any footwear when approaching the tree, and that cell phones are not permitted.

  • 3rd trip to India in a group of friends, this time to see the Gurukul workshop. Discovery of Bodhgaya, its temples and Buddhist monasteries, pilgrims but a city on a human scale and beautiful encounters

  • Very spiritual and historic place. Mind soothing environment. Couldn't share pics as Mobil phones are not allowed. But a totally must visit place. Buddha attained enlightenment here and mediated further for next 7 weeks. Do hire a guide to understand in detail.
  • It is claimed this tree is where Buddha gained enlightenment. It's not the actual tree but a descendant of it. It is a pretty sprawling tree and interesting to see how others react to it.
