There he sat in meditation under a peepul tree (Ficus religiosa or Sacred Fig) which later became known as the Bodhi tree.

  • Situated near to the Bodhi tree temple ,it's a beautiful Chinese Buddhist temple and depicts the life of Buddha in Chinese philosophy  more »
  • DMA Han bodgaya road lined with souvenir shops come from Bodh Gaya first attraction, Maher body Temple, and called the main street. This temple was not only about 100 m away from the Maher body Temple. In the temple, said "China daikaku-ji Temple". Offertory box and entering the grounds and stone statues of Buddhist monks, and ago that was written with"merit". 3 pieces lined up in a pose similar to the altar and temple on the front says "Po Daeungjeon" Golden Buddha statue is why I was wondering.
