Nine serial blasts rocked the Mahabodhi temple and other places of worship in the town, including Tergar Monastery, residence of the Karmpapa in Bodh Gaya. Two monks were injured in the blasts, while property was damaged in Mahabodhi temple complex and Tergar Monastery.

“I was deeply saddened to hear the “senseless violence” perpetrated at the Mahabodhi temple and its environs in Bodhgaya,” the Tibetan spiritual leader said in a statement issued from temporary home at Gyuto Monastery, Sidhbhari, near Dharamshala.

“This is the place where Buddhist pilgrims from India and the world over pay homage to Lord Buddha and his teachings,” he added.
