Other user descriptions
Bodh Gaya or Bodhgaya is a city in Gaya district, Bihar state in northeastern India, 111 msnm.3 is a holy place of Buddhism because in his belief there was enlightened Prince Siddhartha, who was to become a Buddha. The Buddhist tradition says that about V century BC, Prince Siddhartha Gautama came to the town of Bodh Gaya as an ascetic monk. He sat under the bodhi tree (ficus religiosa) where, after three days and three nights of continuous meditation and inner struggle against the temptations of the Maras, Shakyamuni Buddha attained enlightenment or Nirvana. Since then, the town became a place of pilgrimage for Buddhists from around the world and was the world center of Buddhism to the decline of Buddhism in India. One of the largest temples of Buddhism was the Mahabodhi Temple, supposedly founded by the Indian emperor and devout Buddhist, Asoka, 250 years after Buddha's enlightenment. However, the temple was destroyed after the Islamic conquest of India and rebuilt in the nineteenth century by Sir Alexander Cunningham, an archaeologist at the British Archaeological Society.
