This is a beautiful natural place up a small mountain where the Buddha spent 6 years meditating. Sadly, like so many Buddhist places in Bihar, the Brahmins have taken it over and sit in our holy places playing bollywood music in the cave.

Worse still, a Tibetan "guard" outside the cave sits all day playing music loud from his phone and gossiping loudly with others. Its bad enough that Biharis dont know their own clansmens wisdom due to the efforts of Brahminism, its devastating when Buddhists themselves treat a holy place as if its a wedding hall. When I offered him headphones he abused me. I hope he gets fired. Because it's Bihar and all is corrupt and downtrodden, I know he will co time to ruin the experience of pilgrims with his bad energy.

We had the chance to meet a great local guy who run my boyfriend and I for 3 authentic days tour with his motorcycle all around Bodh Gaya. With him we had visited: Mahabodhi temple, sujata temple, sujata stupa, big banayan tree, mahakala cave, 80 feet statue, white Buddha, Thai temple, royal Bhutanese temple, Japanese temple, srilanka temple, Rajgir Nalnda, having also the possibility to visit local rural villages and to breathe the real local atmosphere out of the common tourist tours. Kumar is a young student who use the donations he gets to help the rural villages, providing them with food and water documented by the pictures he still send to us, so you know where your money goes, which we found really fair in comparison with other charlatans we met when we first arrive. It has been an unforgettable experience: the places we visited, the friendly and gentle Kumar always available and patient to any of our (sometimes crazy) requests, the exciting and adventure tours on his motorcycle, all embellished by the Dalai Lama and thousand of Buddhist monks presence. To contact Kumar: ‪+91 88770 65876‬. Thank you Kumar! Thank you Bodh Gaya! Thank you Life to give us the possibility to live this amazing experience!!!

The dungeshwari or pragbodhi caves are where the Buddha performed austerities for six years before he attained enlightenment. It's called so because it's also a shrine to goddess dungeshwari.

One has to climb the hill for at least thirty minutes. Beware of the monkeys lining the path. There are also lots of beggars including children, whose income might be hit badly due to lack of tourists in covid.

On the top, there are Tibetan buildings including a white stupa.

The cave entrance is quite narrow but it widens up inside. One can meditate inside the cave for a short while. The atmosphere is very peaceful inside. Outside however might have some noisy tourists and kids.

The view from the top of the hill is amazing..

The path to dungeshwari is not good, a new road from across falgu or nirajana river is being constructed. The other roundabout path is from Gaya city.

Enttäuschend. So viele Bettler, selbst die Mönche in der winzigen heißen Höhle fragen aggressiv nach Donation. Dazu eine Motorrad Gang, die einen unbedingt 500m fahren will. Mir hat es nicht gefallen.

This cave temple is hardly 20 Km from Bodhitree temple and a must visit to every devotee. Lord Buddha spent 6 years of his time meditating in this small cave before he embarked to meditate under Bodhitree where he eventually was enlightened!
I meditated in this cave for 30-40 minutes but it was my one of the most satisfying meditation. This cave also has two midsized halls. We did group meditation in one of them. It has a statue of Buddha showing his frail body due to prolonged fasting which he eventually gave up after accepting milk and food from Sujata.

We climbed the path on the hillside to the Mahakala caves (Dungeshwari cave). There are three caves. The central cave is where it is believed Siddhartha meditated.In this cave we offered candles, meditated and some made monetary donations. There is a statue of the emaciated Buddha in meditation posture. Another cave contains a golden Buddha. A statue of Hindu goddess ‘Dungeshwari' is also found in the cave temple.

...but considered to be the cave where Siddartha Gautama meditated for years before discovering the “Middle Way” and becoming the Buddha.

We went in motor bikes and I think that is perhaps the best way to get there, led by a local. There is a fairly steep climb up steps when you dismount. The cave entrance is very low, as is its ceiling but the atmosphere is of an ancient holy place.

Don’t miss the monkeys which are abundant - I did not buy the biscuits to feed them.

Get a trusted local, or your lodging manager to hire a rickshaw for you. If you are paying more than rs.500 from the vicinty of Mahabodhi temple, then you are being massively overcharged. Our driver took 3 of us there from the outer police barrier, ( 3 min. walking from Mahabodhi temple ) waited for us for more than an hour, and the returned us to the outer police barrier for rs.500, which was actually higher than local price. The caves are managed by some remarkably unfriendly Gelugpa kushos. Upon departure be prepared to be assailed by a small horde of somewhat aggressive, scowling,and persistent beggars.

Een historische plek waar Siddharta de Gautama 6 jaar zou hebben gemediteerd. Hier overleefde hij met zo weinig mogelijk middelen, en dat is ook maar ternauwernood goed gegaan. Het is een kleine grot maar bijzonder om in te gaan zitten mediteren met deze wetenschap. Een belangrijke pelgrimage plaats die je gezien moet hebben. De grot ligt tegen een berg aangeplakt waar je je ook je weg omhoog kunt zoeken om van het prachtige uitzicht te genieten. Pas wel op voor slangen, dus lange broek en sokken.
