Lumbini Tour

Lumbini and Kathmandu

Trip Overview

Lumbini, the birthplace of Siddhartha Gautam, the Shakya prince and the ultimate Buddha, the enlightened one, is the pilgrimage destination of the world’s millions of people faithful to all schools of Buddhism. This nativity site, identified by Indian Emperor Ashoka’s commemorative pillar is listed as a World Heritage site by UNESCO.

There is this Ashoka Pillar, which showcases the visit of King Ashoka to Nepal and his contributions. Likewise, there are other archaeological findings found in recent years. The Tilaurakot and remainings of Suddodhan’s palace, the temple of Mayadevi, and hundreds of small and big monasteries, all these places made today’s Lumbini a remarkable place to visit.

Although most people (especially the Buddhist prayers) make their visit to Lumbini on the occasion of Buddha Jayanti, others make their way to Lumbini whenever they like. The place is not bound by limited opening days or months. Thus, you can go there in your desired month.
