This is my new place and Dharma center. A Maha Bodhi replica just got completed. It is not as big and elaborate as most Maha Bodhi replicas. It is more of an outdoor shrine / temple, similar to what many Sri Lankan temples have for their Bodhi Trees.

Be it ever so humble, there's no place like massive temple complex! :rolling:

So, are mods required to make pilgrimage?

Yes, definitely! If you can't make to the real one in Bodh Gaya, you can come to this one in Las Vegas.

Imagine that, telling your friends and family that you are going to Las Vegas to go on "pilgrimage". :D

Yes, it is at the side yard of the main house on the grounds of the property.
