Bodhi Tree, Bodh Gaya

(4.8/5 based on 320+ reviews on the web)
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. Arrange to visit Bodhi Tree and other attractions in Bodh Gaya using our Bodh Gaya family vacation planner.

  • If we treat each and every tree as a blissful bodhi tree and refrain to harm them. Then we will achieve peace.

  • A religious place and you can still see the tree under which Lord Buddha received Enlightenment
