Built in the year 1972 with the help of international Buddhist communities, Indosan Nippon Japanese Temple is beautifully carved out of wood and looks very much like a Japanese shrine. It is a fine example of both Japanese architecture and Buddhist culture. Lying at a distance of about 15 km from the city centre, it is one of the most popular temples of Bodh Gaya. The temple was built to preserve and propagate Buddhism and the beliefs of Lord Buddha, and its walls have inscriptions of the teachings of Buddha. The gallery of the temple houses Japanese paintings that depict important events of Buddha's life. It is a must-visit place for all those who wish to learn more about Buddhist culture.
