Bodh Gaya ~ Sujata ~ Gaya

17 km


A picture with the manager of the hotel where I stayed.


His Holiness the Dalai Lama is coming to Bodh Gaya in early January.
But we are going to Dharamshala by May on foot.
I think it is proper for us to meet His Holiness the Dalai Lama at Dharamshala.


After Gotama Siddhartha achieved enlightenment, it is said he receive a milk soup from a young lady from Suzata village. It is said he crossed this river and went to Sazata village to express his thanks.
I crossed the river by walking the bridge.


This is road band on the other side of the river which Buddha might have crossed over.


Trees are standing in the midst of thick fog.


While I walked the same road where Buddha might have walked, I recorded the landscape by smartphone.


Wide and white sandy plain.


I crossed the river reversely and came back to Bodh Gaya.


From now on, I am walking to Gaya. There is a road along the river.


This is an old Hindu temple.


A want ad for students of Islamic school.


Today I walked 17 km.

Today is the last day of 2017. For me, 2017 was a golden time. Early in tomorrow morning I am going to Sarnath and Varanasi. Sarnath is one of the 8 sacred places of Buddhism. Varanasi is a holy place of Hinduism.
