The space
Our home is located in Sujata Village (also known as Bakraur Village), a quiet village just across the river from Mahabodhi Temple (which features the Bodhi Tree under which Buddha attained enlightenment).

We have a spacious open-air rooftop where guests are welcome to hang out, eat fresh homemade meals, and enjoy the views of Mahabodhi Temple, Bodh Gaya town, and Sujata / Bakraur Village.

All of our bathrooms have hot water 24 hours a day. We also offer clean drinking water (water is both filtered and boiled) and free wifi.

Where you’ll be

Sujata, Bihar, India

Our home is located in Sujata / Bakraur Village in the state of Bihar.

Bodh Gaya and Sujata / Bakraur Village is one of the four sacred places of Buddhism.

Sujata / Bakraur Village is the place where Sujata lived, the woman that fed Gautama Siddhartha with milk and rice shortly before he attained enlightenment. A stupa dedicated to Sujata has been erected in our village.

When Sujata fed the Buddha, he was about to die of starvation after the six years of meditation he spent into the Mahakala cave. The cave is 20 kilometers from Ansari House and possible to visit.

Siddhartha attained enlightenment under the Bodhi Tree in Bodh Gaya. There is now a temple which you can visit for free (Mahabodhi Temple).

Those three sites are the main ones to see because they are involved in the story of Buddha but there are also many other temples to visit in Bodh Gaya.

Hello! My name is Islam Ansari. I was born in Sujata village (where our homestay is located) and have also lived in Patna and Kolkata, where I received my education and ran my own leather company.

After my wife, Guri, and I married, we decided to move back to Sujata village to settle down and raise our family.

We have now lived in Sujata village for over 20 years. During this time, we have adopted 18 orphans which we raise alongside our four biological children.

As a native of Sujata village with lots of relatives nearby, I am very familiar with the Bodh Gaya area and well-connected in the community. I can help you prioritize local sights that meet your interests. I can also help arrange reasonably-priced transportation to nearby sights if you’d like.
