Apart from the Mahabodhi Temple at Gaya, you'll find many other attractions. One of my favourites include Bodhi Tree in the temple ground itself. This is perhaps the star attractions. I suggest you sit under the tree and collect some falling leaves to take home with you. 

This is a photo of the Bodhi Tree during my last visit. 

MahaBodhi Temple

Other than that, you have the Mahabodhi stupa, Thai monastery, the 80 foot Buddha statue, Japanese temple also known as the Indosan Nippon, Bodhgaya multimedia museum, the archaeological museum. There are some ancient caves called the Barabar caves about 25 km from Gaya, it happens to be the the oldest surviving rock caves in India. 

In addition, you can always go to Gaya Town about 10 km from MahaBodhi Temple. of Bodh Gaya which has the famous Vishnu Pad Mandir. Its very popular for Pind Dan  (offerings to ancestors) and people all over India come to the temple specially for this. 

Hope this helps and enjoy your visit.
