#1 of 16 in Things to do in Gaya
Built in 1787, Vishnupad Temple is famed for containing the "footprint" of Visnhu. Non-Hindus cannot enter the actual temple, but the surrounding alleys provide plenty of things to see--walk along the river's edge to see devotees bathe and, sometimes, conduct funeral services. Before you head to Gaya, plan trip itinerary details with our user-friendly Gaya travel itinerary maker, to make sure you see all that Gaya has to offer, including Vishnupad Temple.
