Just 2 kilometres away from Bodh Gaya is the Sujata Temple. During Lord Buddha’s journey to enlightenment, he had renounced all worldly pleasures, including food. It was during this time when a tribal woman (named Sujatha) offered kheer to Buddha who was starving from long. It is believed that after 6 years of practicing meditation, kheer was the first morsel Buddha ate. This temple, situated close to the Phalgu river, is thus dedicated to this tribal woman.
