Gaya one of the seven holiest cities of India should have its own space. --Bhadani 17:48, 9 March 2006 (UTC)

The statement that Gaya has the only international airport in Bihar is not correct. Patna is also an international airport. I'll come back and fix this when I am logged in. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 82.120.117.67 (talkcontribs) of 10.01.07

Yes, please update all the information. --Bhadani 11:57, 10 January 2007 (UTC)

IP 123.201.44.205 doing vandalism on Gaya related articles[edit]

It has been found that IP 123.201.44.205 is doing vandalism on Gaya related articles. Kindly take a note on the edits by this IP and take necessary preventive action. --Gunjanarya (talk) 11:24, 25 February 2008 (UTC)

Repeated Undue glorification of certain castes by vested interests[edit]

Repeated undue glorification of certain castes by vested interests has been seen in Gaya related pages. Some of the instances are stated as under:

  • Regarding Magadh University on Gaya, India page: The only university at Gaya is Magadh University established by great bhumihar leaders of Gaya in 1962.
  • Konch-block

This sort of vandalism needs to be addressed with strictness.

--Gunjanarya (talk) 11:42, 25 February 2008 (UTC)


== Congress Session held in Gaya in 1922 under the presidentshio of Deshbandhu Chittaranjan Das.


The issue of glorification of caste on Konch-block page has been sorted out by providing a neutral text and adding more info on the page.

This is not an article from Gaya city, but Gaya district[edit]

As habitual the confusion betweeen district and city: the city has, according the article, near 3.500.000, that is the districte population. Lot af places quoted are from the district (that has article own) instead the city. All the articles about indian districts ans its capitals must be revised, and, when adequate, corrected.--83.56.239.246 (talk) 15:03, 9 June 2009 (UTC)

Agreed, the article lacks focus and is misleading. I placed an appropriate tag on the main page. Much of the content needs to be moved to the district article, and the rest needs to be reviewed. Imc (talk) 20:41, 11 April 2010 (UTC)

Further read and refer to the 3RR rule of Wiki before making indiscriminate changes.

Discuss changes on the talk page before editing without proper references.

Regards, --Indian (talk) 19:04, 28 October 2009 (UTC)

Modification on Gaya: Transportation section[edit]

Hello, I have made some changes on how well connected Gaya is. Hope it is accepted as they are the latest info. Few distance numbers were incorrect and I have modified them. Please let me know if anyone finds them objectionable. I have removed Business Section where mention of zenith studio is given as pioneer of business. Its a small famous studio in gaya but its not at all pioneer of business. Its very much biased and hence I have deleted it.

Article Contents and headings need reorganization.[edit]

I think page headings are not properly organised. Headings like Importance to Hindu Religion, Holy sites in Gaya, Jama Masjid, Shrine of Hazrat Makhdoom Syed Shah Durwesh Ashraf, Baitul Anwar may be clubbed into one. Also the ordering is not proper. More information like climate and culture should be included. As the page is a part of several WikiProjects and represents an important City and tourist place, standards should be kept in mind during eit. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Abksrv (talkcontribs) 05:48, 26 March 2012 (UTC)

Adding more images to the article[edit]

Considering the importance of the article across multiple wiki projects, we need some good images for inclusion. I can see many historical images at bl.uk, but not sure of copyright rules. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 113.193.150.191 (talk) 17:03, 16 January 2014 (UTC)
