A city of ancient historical and mythological significance, Gaya in the state of Bihar attracts religious pilgrims from the Buddhist, Hindu and Jain faiths. Many travellers use Gaya as a springboard on their journey to the important pilgrimage site of Bodhgaya – believed to be where over 2,000 years ago the young Prince Siddhartha achieved enlightenment and thus became Buddha.
In Bodhgaya is Mahabodhi Temple, said to be the location where Buddha attained enlightenment. Since 2002 it has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
In Uttar Pradesh state, the city of Varanasi on the banks of the Ganges River is the spiritual capital of India and the holiest of the seven sacred cities in Hinduism and Jainism. It is home to thousands of temples and crowded with spiritual pilgrims who perform rituals and ceremonies along the banks of the Ganges.
