INDIA - Mahabodhi Temple Complex at Bodh Gaya

"The Mahabodhi Temple Complex is one of the four holy sites related to the life of the Lord Buddha, and particularly to the attainment of Enlightenment. The first temple was built by Emperor Asoka in the 3rd century B.C., and the present temple dates from the 5th or 6th centuries. It is one of the earliest Buddhist temples built entirely in brick, still standing in India, from the late Gupta period." -

A great card with a great view!
Thank you so much KB Dessai for sharing this wonderful card with me...
"This card depicts the Mahabodhi Temple Complex.
It is the place where Gautama Buddha attained enlightenment.
The card shows the main temple, 2 monks meditating & the
Bodhi Tree (on the left side of the card) --- the tree under which
Buddha attained his enlightenment.", KB Dessai shares...
