The Mahabodhi temple
is an ancient buddhist temple at the historic place of Buddha's enlightment
under the Bodhi-tree. The living tree now growing behind the temple is said
to be an offshoot of the original Bodhi-tree from the time of the Buddha,
replanted by ceylonese buddhists.
The temple is revered by buddists all over the world as one of their most sacred places.
