Landmark Tourist Spot
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.

  • The place where Lord Buddha gained enlightenment...U can find the real inner peace here...i have been here hundreds of time and still find myself curious about visiting it again
  • I stayed with the Bodhi tree and my expectations were exceeded. I have dietary restrictions and their head chef, Marcos, stretched the limited food items I have to work with into dishes I'd never dreamed of having. The owners are lucky to have a chef with such passion that shines in the quality of each meal produced. The guy has talent! Despite the general bland nature of the foods I am restricted too, Marcos put thought into creating masterful dishes. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The juice bar was refreshing and the yoga was world class. I intend to return in August, especially if they are still able to accommodate my diet.
  • Most serene atmosphere, just backside of main Mahabodhi temple, Bodhgaya. Here under this tree, Bhagwan Buddha attained Mahabodhi Gyan.
  • Serene environment. Lots of spiritual souls around finding inner peace.
  • Maha Bodhi Temple is one of the holiest sites of Buddhism. It marks the spot of the Buddha’s enlightenment. It is located in Bodh Gaya in the Indian State of Bihar. The Banyan or Bo tree under which Buddha is said to have sat until he attained enlightenment is adjacent to the temple.
