Visit the World Heritage Site of Mahabodhi Temple, the root of an entire religion. Tradition has it that Siddhartha Gautama, the Buddha, sat under a peepul tree here and attained enlightenment, sowing the seeds for Buddhist thought and practice for millennia to come. The first monastery and shrine were established here around 250 BCE, 200 years after the Buddha came to the site. Through the ages, the temple has undergone destruction, reconstruction, disrepair, and renovation. As you walk around, note the fine example of Indian brickwork, the design and structure of which date back to the Gupta period (300-600 CE).

One of the most important place in India and most important place for Buddhist to visit. This is the place where Buddha enlightened and this the place where Buddhism was spread.so must visit place for all Buddhist all around the world. So peaceful and so calm . You can find compassion and kind in this place and so beautiful.
The city of salvation is also a place where you can spend some quality in the lap of numerous Buddha temples or you can say monastery. This is a place which no book has been able to cover all the locations that you can or should visit. Located at the far end of a lane you will never realize what you missed if you did not keep looking. Awesome to visit and mesmerizing!! The calmness sets you at peace !!
