The Royal Bhutan Monastery is a spectacular Buddhist temple and monastery that is situated in Bodhgaya, Bihar, 500 metres from the Giant Buddha Statue and 1 kilometre from the Bodhgaya Bus Station. It is one of the calmer areas to explore in Bodh Gaya and is located next to Wat Thai Buddhagaya.
The King of Bhutan built the Royal Bhutan Monastery, one of the outstanding Buddhist monasteries in the popular tourist destination of Bodh Gaya, as a tribute to Lord Buddha. The monastery that draws millions of Buddhists from all over the world features significant moments from the life of Gautama Buddha as clay carvings. Buddhism can be studied and practised there in peace.
The monastery, which is built in the traditional Bhutanese style, contains a stunning temple and lodging for Bhutanese monks. An image of the Lord Buddha that is 7 feet high and further sculpted with Buddhist symbols and scriptures can be found in the temple inside the monastery. The monastery also performs other duties, including giving lectures on the Buddha and His teachings, leading individuals and groups in meditation, planning peace prayers, and performing temple prayers.
In addition, the monastery provides a hostel with 15 cosy rooms. Visitors are not required to pay anything during their visit; however, they may want to consider making a donation to help cover the monks’ expenses.
