The Mahabodhi shrine at Bodh Gaya was reopened to the public on Tuesday evening, a day after 10 bombs went off there, injuring two monks and shaking the peace of the temple town. Buddhist monks held a special prayer in the evening with people from 50 countries. Tourists and media were allowed to take part in the prayers.
