Bodhi Tree

From the series “The Surviving Artifacts of Buddhist Civilization”
A lot of amazing Buddhist sites can be seen in India. A legendary Bodhi tree is among them. This is not just a natural attraction, but a unique historical object, which is associated with many incredible legends and historical facts. It’s believed that Buddha was born under this tree. Later he attained enlightenment there.

It is obvious that the tree that has grown 2 500 years ago in Nepal, hasn’t been preserved to our days. The sight that travelers can admire today in the Indian town of Bodh Gaya is a direct descendant of prehistoric Bodhi tree. The tree in Nepal, under which the Buddha attained enlightenment, did not survive. A new tree of its seed was grown in Sri Lanka, in the city of Anuradhapura. At this time, the head of state was the king Asoka. He guarded the tree and … Read all
