Bodhgaya Tours and Travels

About Bodhgaya

Bodhgaya, Bihar’s capital city, is a great centre of pilgrimage for Hindus and Buddhists. According to legend, Lord Vishnu, gave Gaya, a celestial being, the power to absolve sinners and send them to heaven. This belief brings thousands of Hindus here to offer the last rituals for their departed ones. The magnificent Vishnupad Temple is said to have been built on the footsteps of Lord Vishnu, with eight rows of beautifully sculptured pillars supporting the Mandap (Pavillion). In the temple premises stands Akshayabat, the immortal banyan tree, where the ritual for the dead culminates. This is the same tree where Buddha seems to have meditated for six years. Buddha attained enlightenment in Bodhgaya located along the Phalgu River, sitting under a banyan tree to meditate, vowing not to rise until he attained enlightenment
