27 Boy Buddhist in Bodh Gaya, India


Young novice monk in maroon robe meditates beside candles in the afternoon sun at Mahabodhi Temple, India.

Bodh Gaya's Mahabodhi Temple gained its UNESCO World Heritage Listing in 2002.

A religious site and place of pilgrimage, Bodh Gaya (in Bihar State) is where Gautama Buddha is said to have obtained enlightenment; after meditating under the Bodhi tree, for 49 days.

For Buddhists, Bodh Gaya is the most important of the main four pilgrimage sites related to the life of Gautama Buddha; something akin to Mecca for Muslims.

Bodh Gaya is about 12km from Gaya City, where overnight trains connect with Kolkata (Calcutta).

The best time to visit is November to March; with December and January considered the high season.
