MAHABODHI

Some of the later Buddhist deities from Tibet and Nepal appear to have been introduced into Bihar during this time. Towards the end of the 10th century A.D., Muslim invasion had its impact on Bihar. Mohammad Ibn Bakhtyar, military commander of Mohammad of Ghor, destroyed many Buddhist monasteries and centres of culture. The eclectic creed of Hinduism also absorbed a portion of Buddhism and Lord Buddha was placed in the Hindu pantheon of Gods and came to be regarded as an Avatar (incarnation of Vishnu).

Mahabodhi temple

Buddha Gaya or Bodh Gaya, the holiest of-holy places to a Buddhist, is 7 miles from the Gaya railway station. From Calcutta to Gaya by rail is a distance of 292 miles. Buddha Gaya is also very well connected by road. One has to come by the Grand Trunk Road to Dobhi and from Dobhi there is an excellent road to Gaya via Buddha Gaya. Taxis, rickshaws and horse-drawn carriages are available in plenty at Gaya railway station. Passenger buses ply from Gaya to Buddha Gaya and also direct from Gaya to Dobhi.
