Pind Daan in Gaya

The place where it all started, Pind Daan in Gaya is the most preferred destination in the country. In Mahabharata, the place has been identified as Gayapuri.

According to the Vayu Purana, the name ‘Gaya’ originated from a demon named Gayasura. After performing rigorous penance and receiving blessings from Lord Vishnu, Gayasura’s body became sacred, and the place continued to be known as Gaya Kshetra. It was said that the Gayasura’s body transformed into the sacred land known as Gaya Kshetra. Gaya Pind Daan is also considered a personal way to make offerings on the footprints of Lord Vishnu, thus ensuring all departed souls of our ancestors rest in peace permanently.
