Bodh Gaya is a village in the northeast Indian state of Bihar. Considered one of the most important Buddhist pilgrimage sites, it's dominated by the ancient brick Mahabodhi Temple Complex, built to mark the site where the Buddha attained enlightenment beneath a sacred Bodhi Tree. A direct descendant of the tree sits within the complex today, along with six other sacred sites, including a lotus pond. In town, other Buddhist worship sites include the ornate Thai Temple and the Royal Bhutan Temple, with their colorful interior murals. Nearby, a path leads to the Great Buddha Statue, a colossal sculpture set amid landscaped gardens. Smaller Buddha statues, plus stone and bronze relics, are displayed at the Archaeological Museum. On the other side of the Falgu River, the SujataStupa is said to be where a local farmer offered food to the fasting Buddha during meditation. In the hills to the northeast, the Dungeshwari Cave contains two Buddha shrines honoring the site where Buddha is believed to have spent years meditating.
