Bodh Gaya

4
One of the most sacred Buddhist sites in the world, Bodh Gaya has risen to international fame as the place where Prince Siddhartha sat under the Bodhi tree and gained enlightenment some 2,600 years ago. Its main temple and Bodhi tree represent the primary attractions of Bodh Gaya, with their historical, spiritual, and artistic importance; today, these World Heritage Sites bring in thousands of pilgrims and tourists each year. More temples, monasteries, and monuments dot the landscape, built by Buddhists from different nations in their own national styles. Bodh Gaya is in Gaya District. Take stress off the schedule by using our India trip itinerary site.

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.
