Photograph of a collection of carved lintels, piled one on top of each other from Bodh Gaya, from the Archaeological Survey of India Collections, taken by Henry Baily Wade Garrick in 1880-81. Bodh Gaya is the site of the Mahabodi Temple complex, one of the holiest sites related to the life of Buddha, as it is the place he attained enlightenment. The original temple was built by Emperor Ashoka in the 3rd Century BC and the present temple dates from the 7th century, late Gupta period. The temple was built in front of the Bodhi Tree, under which the Buddha obtained enlightenment, surrounded by a quadrangular stone railing.
