Mahabodhi Temple (Main Temple)

, Bodh Gaya

Must See
The main attraction of Bodh Gaya is the Mahabodhi Temple which was constructed around the original Bodhi Tree which sheltered the Buddha. Though the temple was constructed in 7th century AD, it has been repeatedly repaired and renovated the last being in late 19th century by the Burmese King and the Archeological survey of India. This Main Temple is shaped like the original stupa constructed by King Ashoka.

The Shrine contains a massive Buddha statue, seating cross-legged and earth touching. This is believed to be the spot where Buddha attained Nirvana. Delicately carved stone railings encircle the temple complex that also houses seven various places where Buddha associated a week during the process of enlightenment.
