I will be reaching by plane to Gay . what is the best way to cover all these places and babadham darshan and go back to varanasi
You can cover Bodhgaya>Nalanda>Pawapuri>Rajgir using cab and then take train from Bakhtiyarpur to Jasidih(Baba Dham) and after Baba dham train back to Varanasi.Can do complete circuit using cab also and then return train from Jasidih.Edited: 15 August 2017, 21:35
It depends how many days you have for this trip.
Lets make it easy..
Once you reach Gaya, take a taxi or auto to reach Bodhgaya
See Bodhgaya either by taxi or by walk as most of temples and monastries are within 1-1.5kms of areas.
Then book a cab from trusted agent and cover Rajgir, Nalada and Pawapuri. If you can give 2 days for Rajgir and see its beauty.
Next if you want to return Gaya and catch train or Bakhtiyarpur near by but if you have late night train avoid Bakhtiyarpur.
From either of train station you can reach Jasidih ( Closed to Babadham).
Have good trip
Please also research and check flood situation before coming as Aug-Sep its rainy season and can expect much rains
