"The Mah?bodhi Temple investigates the historic and ethnographic accounts of the ongoing religious contestations over the status of the Mah?bodhi Temple complex in Bodhgay?

It endeavours to make a ground-up assessment of ways in which human participants in the past and present respond to and interact with the Mah?bodhi Temple and?its?surroundings.
