One of India’s prime spiritual places, Mahabodhi Temple is not just a temple but Buddha’s actual enlightenment place. Such is the calmness that surrounds this meticulously built temple that it attracts people of all age groups to visit it at least once.

Built by Ashoka in the third century and restored by the British in the year 1880, the temple got its due acknowledgment in the year 2002 when it was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Its only when you enter the temple that you realize how grand it is.

From the wide grounds to the main shrine of the deity (painted in gold), from the Bodhi tree to the pond adjoining the temple, from the meditation place in the inner courtyard to the meditation garden flanked by fountains and bells; seek divine bliss under one roof, at one place.
