Bodhgaya (Bihar), Jan 18 (ANI): Meditation under the sacred 'Bodhi Tree' in Bodhgaya district has been temporarily cancelled due to the extreme cold weather.

Hundreds of devotees visit the 'Bodhi Tree' under which Gautama Buddha is said to have achieved enlightenment.

"We have told the devotees coming here to meditate at night not to come due to the extreme cold conditions prevailing here," said monk Dinanand.

A cold wave is sweeping the Indo-Gangetic plains of northern India as icy winds blow in from the Himalayas in the north.

Foggy conditions in the northern plains have also hit road, rail and air traffic. (ANI)
