Why to visit Royal Bhutan Monastery

The Royal Bhutan Monastery, built by the King of Bhutan as a memorial to Lord Buddha, is one of the most impressive Buddhist monasteries in the pilgrimage destination of Bodh Gaya. The monastery, which features major events from Gauthama Buddha's life in the form of clay carvings, attracts millions of Buddhists from all over the world. It's a serene setting where you can learn about and practise Buddhism.

The monastery houses a magnificent temple and a rest house for Bhutanese monks, and it is built in the style of Bhutanese architecture. The monastery's temple houses a 7-foot-high picture of the Lord Buddha that is engraved with Buddhist symbols and teachings. In addition, the monastery performs a variety of functions, including giving talks about Buddha and His teachings, guiding individual and group meditation, organising peace prayers, and offering prayers at the temple.
