A visit to Bodh Gaya...my touristy thing for this trip...
This temple situated on the grounds  where the Buddha achieved enlightenment under the Bodhi Tree was originally built by the Emperor Ashok who became a Buddhist after reflecting on the awful destruction of life in the last campaign...





The Buddha's footprints...


The idol inside the temple...


The Boddhi Tree....


The place where the Buddha paced up and down...


If you manage to get the money to land on top of the pillar, you get your wish...one man seemed to be desperate, so I asked him if she was very pretty...don't think he understood...



A young monk...



Quite a few Westerners were present...looked rather out of place...


Another idol...


This statue was massive...


Interesting architecture...


On the way home...


Great traffic...
