You can soon look forward to experiencing warm and gentle Sarovar Hospitality in the Buddhist Pilgrim town Bodh Gaya. Located by the bank of river Falgu, it is the most holy place for the followers of the Buddhist faith all over the world. In fact, Bodh Gaya is the most important of the main four pilgrimage sites related to the life of Gautama Buddha, the other three being Kushinagar, Lumbini & Sarnath. Mahabodhi Temple in Bodh Gaya, has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The disciples of Gautama Siddhartha began to visit the place during the full moon in the month of Vaisakh (April-May). Over time, the place became known as Bodh Gaya, the day of enlightenment as Buddha Purnima, and the tree as the Bodhi Tree. A special caravan service called Wonder on Wheel, between Patna & Bodh Gaya, has been introduced. So if you are looking for an enlightened holiday, Bodh Gaya is the place to go!

There are two distinct and unique architectural themes at play in the hotel design. The first is of Memory - where one tunes into the historical roots of Buddhist architecture rich with brick details such as vaults, corbelled arches and stepped jambs, which are all developed in a contemporary visual style to represent the present. The second architectural theme is Emotion - inspired by the Buddhist ethos of simplicity, compassion and serenity. These emotions are reflected by the structure and choice of material.


The architecture unfolds enchantingly through a series of layers creating gentle transitions from outside to inside through verandas and framed openings. The Peepal tree (symbolically Bodhi) - the ultimate symbol of the power of Buddha - is viewed from the entrance through several frames and a serene courtyard that forms the emotional and physical heart of the hotel.


The five wisdoms of the Buddha - Abhaya, Dharmachakra, Varada, Dhyana, and Bhumisparsha are expressed in the public spaces - fearlessness, the wisdom of dharma, giving and sharing, unity with oneself, and oneness with the earth. These wisdom guide the spiritual journey from self to divinity and here they are expressed through symbolism and material in each space.

The architecture of the hotel combines the design of the interior spaces and the landscaping of the exterior spaces. Water bodies, gentle and soothing colour palettes, and the mindful use of the five wisdoms of the Buddhist aspect of the Vajradhatu Mandala come together creating a holistic symphony to complement and resonate the simple, serene and tranquil essence of Buddhist philosophy and values.

" In the city of Gaya, Sitting beneath the Bodhi tree,
I realized the most proper enlightenment and turned the supreme Dharma-wheel.
Only then did I teach and transform them, Causing them first to bring forth the resolve for the Way. Now they all dwell in irreversibility, And shall all become Buddhas.
I now speak the truth; You should believe it with a single mind.
For endless eons, I have taught and transformed these multitudes."


The hotel offer rooms and suites in five residential blocks overlooking five spectacular water bodies, symbolising serenity and tranquillity. The colour palette of the entire hotel - white, beige, terracotta and gold are played out in the design and decor elements of the rooms. Exposed brick walls in the rooms exude a rustic charm, while vaulted terracotta ceilings evoke warmth and serenity.

Abhaya: Lobby and Reception
The lobby and the reception area has been designed to celebrate the Buddhist wisdom of Abhaya meaning 'fearlessness' and 'protection'. The wisdom of Abhaya can be represented by a mudra, a season, a direction, a colour or an element. At our lobby and reception, you will find this wisdom in our choice of colour, material, lighting and art objects in the architecture and design elements of the space.


Dharmachakra: The Lounge
The lounge is the central space in the hotel representing the central wisdom of Buddhism - 'The eightfold path of Buddha' also known as the Dharmachakra. The lounge symbolizes and exemplifies the essence of Dharmachakra through the use of the chakra.
The lounge is designed as a comfortable, plush intimate space with a library of books on Buddhism and other subjects


The long central courtyard is the heart of the hotel's architectural framework. It is open to the sky and is marked with corbelled arches on both sides with up lighting from the floor. At the centre of the courtyard, you will find a large urn. The courtyard leads you to the residential area looking towards the Peepal tree (symbolically Bodhi) in the centre and the gentle water body. The courtyard in its simplicity evokes feelings of beauty, joy and compassion.
There is a magical interplay of the natural light of the outdoors combining with the indoor lighting, which is spectacular at dawn and dusk


Bhumisparsha: Pool, Gym, Spa
The area covering the pool, spa and gym are associated with the Buddhist wisdom of Bhumisparsha meaning 'being one with the earth'. It signifies Dharma and nature being in tune with one another. It is also symbolic of the earth aspect of Buddha's enlightenment under the Bodhi tree.
The pool, spa and gym area is landscaped with frangipani trees bearing white flowers and ferns which compliment the colour theme of blue, white and green in turn echoing the emotions and essence of serenity and tranquillity - the nature of Buddha's philosophy

The banquet and conferencing area celebrate the Buddhist wisdom of Dhyana meaning 'unity with oneself'. This is reflected symbolically through the use of lotus and peacock motifs in the interior design elements. The entire design vocabulary complements the symbolic association with Dhyana Mudra - the season of summer, the element of fire and the colour red.

The banquet and conferencing space measure an approximate area of 2100 sq. ft. and opens into a veranda. It looks into the large lawn area with Ficus trees and white flowering bougainvillaea creepers making it a beautiful place to hold outdoor gatherings and celebrations for all occasions.
