Gujarat chief minister Narendra Modi on Sunday said that the serial blasts in Mahabodhi temple in Bodh Gaya district in Bihar was a "cowardly attack".

"Cowardly attack on Mahabodhi temple is a matter of great sadness for the people of India and the Buddhist community around the world," Modi tweeted.

At least two Buddhist monks were injured early on Sunday in multiple blasts at Bihar's 1,500-year-old Mahabodhi temple in Bodh Gaya district, police said.

The temple at Bodh Gaya was built at the spot where the Buddha attained enlightenment over 2,500 years ago. It was declared a Unesco World Heritage Site in 2002.
