Unfortunately, Bihar is the poorest state in India and so, I'm afraid, you'll find plenty of beggars in Bodh Gaya. They mostly congregate around the outside of the Mahabodhi Temple in large rows sitting on the ground with begging bowls. I counted over 30 in one row alone plus more would beg for money through the fence as you're walking around the temple on the perimeter path. It's a shame and they have obviously have come to Bodh Gaya from other parts of Bihar in order to get money.

Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Mosquito Repellant, Bodhgaya lies at a river.
Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: A mosquito net is a must, just like almost everywhere in India
Miscellaneous: If you roll your cigarettes, take the papers with you. Better you suply yourself with western papers before the trip, because the indian papers have a poor quality on the sticky part. You merely lick it of, and your cigarette will fall apart. We had bought all the papers of the entire town within a month, and there weren´t any being delivered for the following 6 weeks. Even the main suplier for all the tiny box-stores dind´t have any.
