Bihar,Religion,Environment/Wildlife, Fri, 23 Mar 2012 IANS

Patna, March 23 (IANS) Over three dozen tourists, including those from Sri Lanka and Cambodia, have come under attack by wasps in the past three days in Bihar's Bodh Gaya, the birthplace of Buddhism, officials here said Friday.


After wasps stung some foreign tourists, authorities were facing a tough time in convincing tourists to stay on in this holy town.


Bodh Gaya, about 110 km from here, is where Lord Buddha attained enlightenment 2,500 years ago.


Over three dozen tourists were injured by wasps in the last three days near Bodh Gaya.


"Most of the victims of wasp attacks are Buddhist pilgrims from Sri Lanka and Combodia. They were injured when wasps attacked them on way to Gurupadgiri hill to perform worship," said an official of the Bodh Gaya temple.


A Bihar tourism department official said: "We have appealed to tourists not to fear wasp attacks in Bodh Gaya. It is a safe place."
