Lumbini - Buddhist pilgrimage tour

liumbini tour package

Lumbini tour Highlights

  • Lumbini - Birth place Lord shakyemuni Gautama Buddha
  • Holiness and its importance to the entire humanity.
  • Explore various monesteries, Mayadevi temple, Asokan Pillar, Dav Daha and more.

Lumbini is located southern part of Nepal where Gautama Buddha was born in 563 B.C., in Rupandehi district of central Terai of Nepal. Gautama’s mother, Mayadevi, was on her way to her maternal house in Devdaha. As she arrived in Lumbini, she delivered her child, who surprised her mother by walking three steps immediately after birth. According to legends, she was enraptured to see his radiant face, and lotuses and water were poured from the heavens upon the new born baby. Although the holiest place for the Buddhists, Lumbini has remained largely in shadow for most of the time, due in part to the gross misinformation spread in the world community that Lumbini lies in India. After it was verified by the UNESCO as the birthplace of Gautama the Buddha and its inclusion in the world heritage list, it has slowly started to get the international limelight. A landmark achievement for the physical development and international fame for Lumbini was achieved when U Thant, the then Secretary General of the UN, visited it as a pilgrim in 1967 A. D. The Secretary Generals of the UN afterwards have taken keen interest in developing it as a beacon of world peace. Especially noteworthy are also the visit of the incumbent UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon and his enthusiasm in developing Lumbini. Nepal government has declared 2012 as the year to discover lumbini in order to highlight its holiness and its importance to the entire humanity. This trip and timing can be personalized as per your interest. Please send us e-mail to let us know your requirements. Thank you!
