Enlightened Wanderings

The Maha Bodhi Temple in Bodhgaya, India is the tribute where Buddha was enlightened. In the complex, you can see the exact spot of the Bodhi tree - marked with a plaque - or walk around the temple with devotees and visitors. There may be a meditation service happening with maroon-robed followers chanting or you may have corners of the site to yourself. Either way, it's easy to feel a little lighter within the walls than outside them.
