Beautiful replicas!

Even the architectural rendering is beautiful. Do you know where I could purchase an architectural rendering like that?

Thanks you too, for your kind comment.

Sorry for late reply, I fell asleep :smile:.

I don't know where to purchase, but I think there may very well be some information related to that on the internet.

The full architectural model rendering looks very nice (pictured here), I'll search around. If I'm not able to find or acquire a copy that's okay, I already have several smaller replicas at my place and an outdoor open pavilion style replica.

But there are no dogs in any of these replicas. Just doesn't feel real to me.

Perhaps we could add some dog barking sounds to at least give some authenticity.

:twothumbsup:

Great collection.

You're good at finding these Maha Bodhi replicas, especially the ones in Myanmar. Do you know of any I missed in some other countries?

My list is here:

Thanks. Actually some of them were found unintentionally (like the one on Sagaing hills.)

I searched in Burmese and English to focus finding Myanmar ones, on google and FB, with search phrase including the name of the probable town. I assume the numbers (big or small ones) from Myanmar may go into hundred, because Burmese love Bodh Gaya, and tend to try replicating within monasteries or pagoda compounds in their native towns; but finding them efficiently is quite difficult because many of them are unlabeled at all or not labeled as "maha bodhi", on google maps. To search for other countries some other strategies may be needed. The pagodas listed on https://dhammawiki.com/index.php/Maha_Bodhi_replicas are extensive and haven't yet gone through them country by country.
