Offering

Temple Offering, Bodhi Tree Temple, Anuradhapura, Sri Lanka

The Bodhi tree temple complex in Anuradhapura, Sri Lanka, attracts thousands of pilgrims everyday. Many leave offerings of lotus flowers. The  Jaya Sri Maha Bodhi, planted in 288 BC, is said to the oldest and longest-surviving documented human-planted tree in the world. It  is believed to have been propagated from the original Bodhi tree under which Buddha attained enlightenment.
