Bodh Gaya is the most important Buddhist pilgrimage destination in the world. Located in the state of Bihar, India, it's here that Prince Siddhartha attained enlightenment beneath a bodhi tree (Ficus tree) 2600 years ago and became Buddha (the 'Awakened One'). The exact spot is now marked by the sprawling Mahabodhi temple complex (UNESCO World Heritage). In this very serene place, monks from all over the world can be found sitting at the foot of an enormous carved Buddha statue, reading holy scriptures, and in deep contemplation. The town is also home to dozens of Buddhist monasteries, maintained by various Buddhist countries.
