Niranjana River, Bodhgaya

Niranjana River, Bodhgaya
Bodhgaya is a pleasant town situated at the shores of the Niranjana river.
There is, however, one thing that sets this place apart from all others: here, under a Bodhi tree, prince Siddharta achieved enlightenment and became “the Buddha”.
So, Bodhgaya is one of the holiest sites for Buddhists and there are monasteries from just about any Buddhist country.
Very interesting to visit, - but exploring rural India is just as rewarding!
