The Chinese Temple is a revered Buddhist shrine that is situated in Bodhgaya, Bihar, 1 km away from the Bodhgaya Bus Station. It is one of the many temples in Bodh Gaya and one of the must-see locations on Bodh Gaya packages. It is located just across from the entrance to the Mahabodhi Temple complex.
The Chinese Temple is a magnificent Buddhist temple that was constructed in 1945 by Chinese Buddhist monks working with the Chinese government. It underwent renovation in 1997. Beautiful Chinese and Indian elements are combined in the temple’s architecture, notably in the exterior, which has a Chinese monastery-like appearance. A 200-year-old Buddha statue that was transported from China and placed as a sacred shrine is kept at the temple. The temple has three exquisite golden sculptures of Lord Buddha, which are the main draw of the location aside from the main shrine.
The temple’s extensive and in-depth travel diaries, written by Chinese religious academics who went to India in search of enlightenment and spirituality, are another attraction. The annual celebration of Buddha Jayanti, which honours the birth of Lord Buddha, is one of the most significant festivals held here and draws thousands of monks and devotees from around the world.
