The Mulgandha Kuti Vihara temple, is relatively recent- set up in 1931. It has excellent frescoes by a Japanese artist, on its inside walls, which depict the Buddha and his travels.
Also, theres a huge bell, hanging at the entrance to the temple, which was also a gift from the Japanese.
There is also a Bodhi tree in the temple complex, whose sapling was bought from a Bodhi tree in Sri Lanka, which in turn originated from the original Bodhi tree (under which the Buddha attaned enlightenment almost 2,500 yrs ago) in Bodhgaya.
