  1. Some good trains are: 1. Rajdhani Express, 2. Mahabodhi Express, and 3. Purosottam Express. All of these are overnight trains.
  2. Please reserve your seat 60 days in advance.
  3. You can book your ticket directly by going to this website – www.irctc.co.in.
  4. Trains are running from Delhi to the Gaya junction. Ground transportation from the Gaya junction to Buddha Gaya will take 30-45 minutes by taxi, bus or auto. Adequate ground transportation is available to accommodate conference participants.

AIR ? There are also some flights from Delhi to Buddha Gaya, as well as a daily flight from Delhi to Patna. The drive from Patna to Buddha Gaya takes between 2.5 -3 hours by taxi. There is also a train and a bus from Patna to Gaya.

TRAVEL TIME IN KOLKATA/CALCUTTA – Please allow for one to one and one half hours (1 – 1 1/2) travel time from the Calcutta airport to the train station.

Mr. Pema Wangchuk – cell no +9810497441, E-mail: sidswish@vsnl.com
