Why Bodh Gaya?

A spiritual site and revered place of holy pilgrimage by the banks of the river Falgu, Bodh Gaya is where Buddha is said to have attained enlightenment — the highest level of consciousness of mind and soul.


Bodh Gaya is where Buddha is said to have attained enlightenment or nirvana — the highest level of consciousness of mind and soul — by sitting under the Bodhi tree for forty-nine days without movement. Today, Bodh Gaya serves as the foremost site of pilgrimage and veneration for Hindus and Buddhists across the world.

Inspired by spirituality, designed with love

As a hotel near Mahabodhi Temple, every detail of Marasa Bodh Gaya is designed to evoke a heightened sense of inner peace by seeking...


... spiritual inspiration from the wisdom of our forefathers. The architectural theme of memory seeks cues from the historical roots of Buddhist architecture, expressed in brick details for vaults, corbelled arches and stepped jambs. The historical nuances are underscored by the theme of emotion, inspired by the Buddhist ethos of simplicity, compassion and serenity and expressed in the gentle transition from the indoors to the outdoor verandas till the serene courtyard that forms the physical and emotional pulse of one of the finest thematic hotels in India.

Global perspective, local sensibility

Marasa Bodh Gaya offers a multi-tiered experience with a contemporary sensibility anchored with a reverence for our roots.


Indulge your senses in the patio crafted with a local clay-tiled roof and corbelled arches that offer a view of the veranda and courtyard all the way to the Peepul tree (symbolically Bodhi) and the lotus water body. Much like viewing life through a frame that graduates from one phase to another, the sight evokes the feeling of passage and continuity and finally, enlightenment as symbolised by the Peepul tree.
