The Bodhi tree, a large Sacred Fig (Ficus religiosa,) is in Bodh Gaya in India's eastern state of Bihar, about 60 miles from the state capital of Patna. "The Bodhi tree is fully healthy," Subhash Nautiyal of the Forest Research Institute in India's northern state of Uttarakhand said.
Nautiyal and colleagues examined the tree after removing the cement slabs around its base, China's Xinhua News Agency reported. "It will help the tree to receive water and nutrition in its roots," the scientists said.
The 1,500-year-old temple behind the sacred tree is visited by large numbers of tourists from all over the world, particularly from Japan.
El olor a Chai en las calles de India, la brisa que entra en el tren mientras recorres todos sus paisajes, aquellas miradas curiosas y penetrantes, el sabor picante en su comida y que decir de ese caos cuando pisas qualquier ciudad... Sensaciones que no me dejarán nunca. #india#calcuta#bodhgaya#varanasi#train
