Bodhgaya is obviously the most famous and most visited place of the holy places, which is the one with the most important events of the life of Buddha

Bodh Gaya is obviously the most famous and most visited place of the holy places associated with the most important events in the life of Buddha, and is undoubtedly the most visited place for Buddhists all over the world. The history of this city is famous: after years of ascetic life in the forest, Prince Siddhartha, one step away from death, contemplates his spiritual journey and after accepting a bowl of rice from a young woman, he sits under a pipal tree and vows to himself, not to get up until he has attained enlightenment. So he became a Buddha, and the tree was called the Bodhi Tree from that moment on. The following week he meditated in various places near the tree and then went to Sarnath, where he gave his first speech.
Bodhgaya is located in one of the poorest areas of India, in the state of Bihar, which is considered to be one of the most dangerous for travelers, although the situation has improved somewhat in recent years.
