MAHABODHI

Introduction

The background of the famous Mahabodhi temple at Bodh Gaya near Gaya has to be indicated. According to accepted testimony, Gautama Buddha's birth and death could be placed between 560 B.C. and 480 B.C.

There are a very large number of mythical and legendary stories regarding the Buddha. This is partially due to the fact that Buddhist literature grew later than the Buddha and statements, traditions, and Iegends have been freely ascribed to Buddha personally.

Through passage of time they have acquired a certain degree of sanctity throughout the world. Another reason is the decline of the creed of Buddhism in India from around the 6th century A.D.
