Categories: Sacred & Religious Sites, Tourist Spots
Visit Sri Maha Boodhi Temple to see the most sacred object in Buddhist history--the Maha Bodhi tree. The ancient branches of this 2,247-year-old tree represent the place where the Lord Buddha found enlightenment. Local pilgrims and devotees come to worship the holy site, while chants and prayers resonate through the oldest continuing Buddhist monastery and the center of Theravada Buddhism. See nearby Love Maha Paya, the nine-story house built between 167-137 BCE, as well as Jethavanaramaya Dagaba with its alien-like sphere that contains Buddha’s relic, and many other monastic buildings. You can explore the complex on your own, or hire a guide for a more comprehensive experience.
