Buddha & Bo Tree

In a site of incredible serenity. A collection of ancient Buddhist sculptures rests in the shade of a pipal, or bodhi tree. The bodhi tree is considered sacred; it was under such a tree that Prince Siddhartha meditated and gained enlightenment. Thereafter referred to as Gautama Buddha, he traveled and preached the principles of Buddhism.
