Since I'm deeply interested in spirituality and have studied Buddhist Vipassana meditation, I was thrilled at the recent opportunity to visit Bodh Gaya in Bihar. This is the place where the Buddha became enlightened and there's a huge temple complex, the Mahabodhi Temple, there.

Of course, I was looking forward to meditating at the temple. And, the experience didn't disappoint. What's more, the temple complex is simply magnificant -- much more so than I expected -- both in terms of its architecture and well maintained sprawling grounds.

Unfortunately, I had severe time constraints but would've loved to have spent days there.

You can read my review of the Mahabodhi Temple or see my photos in this Bodh Gaya Photo Gallery on Facebook.
