Since Bodh Gaya is deeply entrenched in the Buddhist faith, being the place where Lord Buddha attained nirvana (enlightenment), it invites devotees from across the world to explore its rich heritage and culture. While the simple yet antique architecture of its temples, monasteries and other sites leaves visitors standing in awe, there are other interesting aspects to the town as well. Its popular art forms include statues of Lord Buddha that are sold in various shapes and sizes. The statues portray Buddha sitting in various poses and are generally made of sandalwood or metal. Various markets like the Tibetan market sell a host of these products. One can buy the statues as memorabilia to take back home, and carry the spiritual fervour of the city with her/him.
