The Temples and Monasteries of Bodhgaya

Bodhgaya is peppered with Buddhist monasteries and temples from different countries. A lot of Buddhist pilgrims and tourist visit these monasteries and temples to pay respect to their customs and beliefs.

Some of these temples also offer accommodations to pilgrims and tourists such as the Tibetan Karma Temple and the Bhutanese Temple.

I spent almost two afternoons visiting some of these monasteries and was awed with how beautiful they are. My favorite is the Bhutanese Monastery. The intricate details outside and inside the temple is really breathtaking.

Here are some pictures of some of the temples and monasteries of Bodhgaya that I’ve visited:
