GAYA 
The holy Pitru Kshetra

THE MAIN TEMPLE

This lies at about 2 km from the station. It is of modest dimensions, the interior and the exterior belie the glory it proclaims and pitiable it is that poor maintenance and inadequate attention peep at the pilgrims from every frame. Many parts are in dilapidated condition. As one enters and proceeds towards the garbha griha only antiquity lays itself bare everywhere, but the sights of congregations of priests, chanting hymns; clusters of pilgrims offering pindas and scores of devout persons observing them lift 'his heart. The spacious court hall is adorned by the most venerated Vishnupadas and Dharmasila and in front of them people in their, hundreds huddle engaged in obeying the directions of the teamed brahmins. The image Adi Gadadhara is quite enchanting both in size and decoration. The temple contains quite a good number of mini shrines dedicated to the adorable gods and goddesses and among them the shrine of the sun-god draws the pilgrims most. Pilgrims normally visit them after a dip in the Phalguni river flowing beside the temple. While returning, they invariably buy copper plates embossed with the footprints of Lord Sri Mahavishnu.
