About Gaya

Gaya is a city of ancient mythological and historical significance. It is also one of the major tourist attractions of Bihar, a state in East India that borders Nepal and an important Buddhist pilgrimage site.

Gaya is considered to be a place of ritual and is famous for “pinddaan puja”, which is a Hindu sacred ceremony for the departed and performed on the banks of any chosen Indian holy body of water. It draws people from all over the world, most travelling here in the monsoon months, which are September and October. Overlooking the banks of the river is the Vishnupad Temple, built in the 18th century by the Maratha princess Ahilyabai. It is surrounded by hills, the highest of which is Brahmayoni, which rises to a height of 137 metres above the plain. Pretashila is a scenic hill nearby, offering a spectacular view and regularly filled with devotees who visit in the belief that they will be guarded from evil spirits. Sold here and exclusive to the city are delicious sweets “Enursa”, “Lai” and “Tilkut” which are made of sugar, wheat flour and dried fruits.

Gaya is well connected by air, rail and road. The nearest airport is Bodhgaya, a mere five kilometres away, with regular flights from many far-eastern countries. There is a wide choice of trains from Delhi, Kolkata and Mumbai servicing Gaya Railway Station, 15 kilometres away from the religious site. Many car rental companies, chauffeur driven cabs and regular cabs serve both airport and in the city.

E. M. Forster began writing his book “A Passage to India” while visiting Gaya and other regions of India in late 1912 to early 1913. Regarded as his best novel, it was later made into a motion picture with many of the scenes filmed in and around the area.
