You may call Bihar an ancient city, but what is so special about this city is also the remarkable historical importance of it. As this is one of the oldest inhabited places in the world, the culture and heritage it carries are also very rich.

Mahabodhi Temple
Located very close to hotels such as Oaks Bodhgaya, you find the Mahabodhi Vihar which is one of the World Heritage Sites in Bodh Gaya. The temple complex here is related to the life of the Lord Buddha, which is why this place is always crowded with Buddhist devotees.

Patna Museum
If you want to see some interesting artifacts of Mughal and Rajput, Patna Museum is the place that you should head to. It has a great collection of art objects, paintings, and other archaeological objects for your to explore and discover.

Munger Fort
This is also known as one of the greatest monuments in the region which is built on a rocky hill rock on the south bank of the Ganges River. Inside the fort, you find the Palace of Shah Suja and some ancient temples too that should not be missed out on when here.

Barabar Caves
Barabara caves are the oldest surviving rock-cut caves in India, and these are located 18km north of Gaya in Jehanabad. Although it is a little distant from your hotel in Bodhgaya, these caves are worth your visit before they go extinct.
