:) All the best!
I am planning to visit, not sure when but surely some time in the near future.
Let's go beyond this illusion, shall we?

Hello Pooja,
How was Bogh Gaya during full Moon.
I was planning to visit but I was in Nepal and I was stuck there due to the massive Earthquake.
I was so excited to visit Bodh Gaya, since it was going to be my first time in Bodh Gaya.
Thank You

I am thankful that I am safe.
It was quite a shocking fearsome disaster.
Is that image of Bodh Gaya in full moon?
Its quite beautiful.

yes, this is Bodh Gaya main temple.

You can see the Bodhi tree as well (fourth gen. from the time of the Buudha).

This full moon of the year is celebrated as Buddha Purnima - full moon of this time of the year when the Buddha was born, got enlightened, and passed away into nibbana.

I had gone to Bodh Gaya thinking it would be nice time to be there on this full moon.
