Agra’s Taj Mahal is a world famous site for very good reasons. The monument to love is impressive and built in white marble with rich decorations. Be careful not to bring scissors, food, or chewing gum that may stain the site. A serious security search is always organized at the entrance.
Bodh Gaya’s Maha Bodhi Temple is an essential site for Buddhists, but also very pretty for other traditions. It evokes an atmosphere of peace that is conducive to meditation and healing. It is a sacred place that deserves a visit while in Bodh Gaya.
