The drive was comfortable. As we had started in the early hrs, there were no traffic snarls. We could travel without any hindrance. The roads in Gaya, were rough with potholes every now and then. But, the driver being very meticulous took us without any hitch and making our journey as comfortable as possible.

Mode of Transport:Train
The train was late by around 1 hour to begin with, and further it got late by 1 hour on the way. So instead of reaching at the usual time of 9 PM, I reached at 11 PM. This made it difficult to catch an autorickshaw to Bodhgaya. But, the coaches were clean and blankets and bedding were provided.
