Because of its vivid colour scheme, a 7-foot-tall gold Buddha statue, and magnificent architecture, it is a well-liked tourist destination. People who practise Buddhism travel from all over the world to this monastery to see the clay carvings of the Buddha’s life.
  • Tibetan Monastery – It is Bodhgaya’s oldest monastery and dates back to 1938.
