Indian Buddhist Sites

Here are a number of photos I took of Indian Buddhist sites between 2011-2014.

Lumbini (on the Nepalese side of the border), where the Buddha was born.

The Aśoka pillar at Lumbini.

Bodhgaya, where the Buddha achieved awakening under the Bodhi Tree.

Varanasi (Ganges River), and Sarnath at Deer Park, where the Buddha first taught.

Rajgir and Vulture's Peak, where the Buddha spent some years.

Nalanda, a major Buddhist monastery near Rajgir.

Kushinagar, where the Buddha passed away.
