Bodh Gaya ::Gautama Buddha
Bodh Gaya is the place where Gautama Buddha meditated and attained enlightenment.
Mahabodhi Temple holiest Buddhist center, situated near the river Phalgu about 12 km. from Gaya and 112 km from Patna.
The Pipal tree under which the Buddha attained Enlightenment, though not in the same form as existed during those times,but a tree grown from the sprouting is definitely a place to find a few moments to meditate for the religious people.
Thus it was 2,500 years ago. Very beautiful.
