At Bodhgaya, Bihar is a found a tremendous lake beyond all wonders. Right in the middle of this Muchalinda Lake is found a clay statue of Lord Buddha in a sited position. The myth behind this historical structure tells us that during the sixth week of his meditation, a very strong storm broke on Lord Buddha thus throwing heavy waves on him.
