Multiple small bomb blasts hit the historic Bodh Gaya Buddhist temple complex in eastern India on Sunday, wounding two monks, police said, but the temple itself was not damaged.
Buddhists from all over the world visit the site in Bihar state, which is believed to house the tree under which the Buddha reached enlightenment in 531 BC.
"The holy bodhi tree is safe and there is no damage to it," Bihar police chief Abhayanand told AFP.
Senior police official S.K. Bharadwaj said, "eight low-intensity serial blasts took place early this morning, injuring two people".
