Alex Blauhorn travels to the world’s most famous place of enlightenment to capture an average day of a pilgrim monk.

THERE IS A REMOTE place in India where Hinduism and Buddhism live together in harmony – it is called Bodhgaya. This is the most sacred place for Buddhist pilgrims, because here is where you can find the Bodhi Tree where Prince Siddhartha Gautama attained enlightenment over 2500 years ago.

Thousands of pilgrims gather from all over the world every year to pray at the Mahabodhi Temple and relax under the famous Bodhi Tree. Here are photos that capture a day around the grounds.
