Trip Overview

Lumbini is one of ten world heritage sites for religious pilgrimage in the world and sole source of world's one of the major religions, Buddhism, and a source of world peace and prosperity, and no doubt one of the places to be visited in your lifetime.

Lumbini, the birthplace of the Buddha is one of the most popular destinations for the world's over one million Buddhists. It does not mean it is only famous for Buddhist religious groups along but also for any individual searching for peace and serenity in life.

Lumbini is located in the south-western part of Nepal, which is approximately 300 km away from Kathmandu. About 2,600 years ago, Approximately in 566 BC, Siddhartha Gautam was born in Lumbini while his mother Maya Devi was on her way to her maternal home for the delivery. The holy book also says that Maya Devi was feeling the onset of labor pains, and she grabbed the branches of a shade tree and gave birth to Lord Buddha. Immediately after birth, the Buddha said to have announced that it was his final rebirth and took seven steps, under each of which a lotus flower bloomed. 

Siddhartha Gautam was the prince of the Shakya King, who said to have ruled in central Terai from their capital at Titaurakot. Later on, he had attained enlightenment, at which time he became the Buddha.

Lumbini arguably has been the world's most important historical site. Therefore, why UNESCO even listed Lumbini under the lists of world's heritage sites in 1997 AD, and equally, it has also been the source of one of the world's great religions and the center of the country's most significant archeological discovery.

There are several ancient ruins of Buddhist monasteries, Maya Devi temple, a sacred garden spread over eight sq km, a sacred Bo tree, Ashoka pillar, and a sacred bathing pool in Lumbini. Maya Devi had taken a bath in the Sacred bathing pool before giving birth to Gautam Buddha.
