GAYA 
The holy Pitru Kshetra

UNIQUENESS

Gaya is one of the renowned Tristhali-Kasi, Gaya and Prayaga, the three indispensable centres of pilgrimage for pious Hindus, and occupies a pre-eminent place among them for reasons more than one. The first and foremost is, its importance as the cradle of Buddhism, besides being a holy thirtha Kshetra for Hindus. Next comes Brahma's choice once as the fittest and holiest spot on earth for performing a sacrifice for the progress of mankind. Then follows its uniqueness as the only place where all gods in all denominations, i.e., mukkoti devathas are dwelling, and being worshipped by the devotees in accordance with the ardent wish of Gaya, granted by Brahma Himself. It is the only place where Lord Mahavishnu is adored as Ad! Gadadhara, for having used His mighty Mace for a mightier cause at the instance of the mightiest creating power Brahma. And it is here the river Vaitarani descended to liberate the manes, when pindas are offered. It is the only place in our punya Bharat, where one can offer pinda to one's own self, while alive.
