The Royal Bhutan Monastery is one of the most magnificent monasteries in the region. The king of Bhutan had this monastery built here in Bodhgaya to honor Lord Buddha. The monastery is only two minutes away from the place where Buddha attained enlightenment under the Pippala tree. The Mahabodhi Temple is built on that same spot, with a Pippala tree, and an offshoot of the Buddha tree. I’m looking forward to visiting this place tomorrow. But today, I want to have time in the Royal Bhutan Monastery. The monastery impresses with its magnificent architecture, serenity, and a seven-foot-high Buddha statue inside. I look at the clay cuts that tell about the life of the Buddha and marvel at the large statue inside the temple.
