On the journey so far, from Sagar Island, past Calcutta, and up to the mouth of the Ganges, I only see Hindu temples on the river. This is now changing. Buddhist temples are also blending into the landscape. I can recognize them from afar, the stupas, which form the religious center of the monastery and bear relics of Buddha or outstanding monks. We continue on the holy river Ganges into the center of the Bihar region, the area where the historical Buddha was enlightened and did his teachings. The area that Buddha was moving in and teaching, is northern India. If you draw a straight line on the map from the bend in the Ganges in the west, which we have entered today, to the east in Allahabad.
