You would be blessed and glad to be here, you would prefer meditation rather than prayer under a blissful shade of the Mahabodhi Tree. This spiritual travel destination Bodhgaya has boosted the tourism with a special kind of religious enthusiasm & bolstered the teachings of the Great Buddha.
This was one of my most memorable trips ever. This might be a perfect destination to create memories with your parents. Let your parents romanticize with the historic extravagance of this amazing place.
A Glimpse of Buddhism –
Buddhism is a religion practiced by around 9 to 10% of the world’s total population. India is extremely characterized by a diversity of religious beliefs & practices. When we talk about Buddhism, there are four main pilgrimage sites related to the life of the Gautam Buddha - Kushinagar (Uttar Pradesh, India), Lumbini (Rupandehi, Nepal), Sarnath (Uttar Pradesh, India) and Bodhgaya (Bihar, India).
Bodhgaya is a place where the Gautam Buddha is said to have attained enlightenment. If you love & believe the doctrines of the Buddha, you would love to meditate in the Mahabodhi Temple complex for sure.
How to Reach –
If you have a car, you should go by road only via Allahabad on NH19. You can take a bath in Triveni Sangam & add a real feather in your cap. This decision will surely enrich the religious tour. Journey by train is more convenient as it takes less than 12 hours to reach there and about 10 trains are available. The route is busy so you should get your reservation done at least 30 days before.
