Hotel at Bodhgaya
Bihar, India

Bodhgaya - where the Buddha received enlightenment; one of the holiest and oldest sites of pilgrimage for the Buddhist world. Our hotel – gently uses the vocabulary of brick details from the Buddhist trail - vaults to corbelled arches to stepped jambs that soften the edges of buildings and make them welcoming and timeless. Replete with courtyards and water bodies that play with the sunlight – stained concrete vaults and keyhole windows  create dancing shadows and a lasting emotion of serenity and surrender
