Buddhist Monasteries in India

Sanchi Stupa in Madhya PradeshBuddhism was a religion that was born in India but spread its wings all over the world. Being the country of Gautam Buddha, the Buddhist pilgrimage centers in India are the main attractions that attract devotees even from outside India. And why not! India was the center of Buddhist learning in the ancient times, and religious sites of those times have become the places of monumental importance today.

Bihar is one of the major states when it comes to Buddhist religious monument centres such as Bodh Gaya and temples like Bodhi and Maha Bodhi temple. Then there are monasteries such as Tabo and Namgyal in Himachal, which have a lot of Tibetan influence on them. Similarly, hilltop buddhist monasteries and a colourful way of life, completely at one with the surroundings, make Ladakh one of the best living traditions of Tibetan Buddhism in the world today.
