The Great Awakening Temple

A small sculpture at the Mahabodhi Temple in Bodhgaya, India. This is a popular place for Hindus because this is where Siddhartha Gautama, attained enlightenment. Today the Mahabodhi Temple's grounds are filled with robed monks who have travel from as far as Thailand to pay homage to Buddha.

The temple is centrally located in the town of Bodhgaya, and is essentially the only reason to come for a visit. It is a quaint town with a gloriously slow pace of life.
