The Buddhist Monastery- Sakya Muni Buddha Gaya Temple or the Temple of 1000 lights is a prime example of true devotion. The temple got its name (temple of 1000 lights) due to the colourful chain of lamps or "lights" that surround the grand Buddha statue. Built in 1972 by a Thai monk named Venerable Vutthisara, the divine temple is home to several relics and intricacies thereby making its atmosphere serene and peaceful. One can also find frescos at Sakya Muni Buddha Gaya Temple which depict the life of Buddha at various stages. Besides this, the temple also has a copy of Buddha’s footprint which is made of mother of pearl and ebony.
