Bodhgaya "Ananda, there are four places for who are confidently trading on the path of Dharma to visit which may further inspire them in Dharmma"
"Buddham Sharanam Gachaami
Dhammam Sharanam Gachaami
Sangham Sharanam Gachaami"

In the Mahaparinirvana sutra, the Buddha tells his followers that they can attain merit and a noble rebirth by going on pilgrimage to the places where he was born (Lumbini), gained enlightenment (Bodhgaya), first taught (Sarnath), and attained Nirvana (Kushinagar).

As part of its drive towards austerity, the only kind of art and architecture that it supported were Stupas (stone cased moulds that commemorated relics of Buddha), Chaitayas (prayer halls) and Vihara (cells for the monks).

Come, discover the path to enlightenment with the Buddhist Circuit Special Train.
