Lumbini Pilgrim Tour Description

Lumbini remains eternally significant as the sacred birthplace of Lord Buddha. Nestled in the heart of this revered site, the blessings and holy birth of the founder of Buddhism resonate, creating an enduring allure for visitors. Beyond its spiritual essence, Lumbini captivates with lush green vegetation and the presence of several beautifully crafted shrines, inviting devotees and visitors to immerse themselves in the serene ambiance of Buddhism.

On the Lumbini Pilgrim Tour, a leisurely stroll unveils the birthplace of Lord Buddha. As you wander, the Maya Devi Temple and Pushkarni Pond come into view, marking the spot where the baby Buddha received his first bath after birth. The authenticity of Buddha's birth in Lumbini is affirmed by the Ashoka Pillar, a profound testament to the site's historical and spiritual significance.

The tour is a spiritual journey where the positive vibes of Lumbini embrace those who seek fulfillment in the teachings of Buddhism. The tour unfolds the religious spirit in inspiring ways, allowing your eyes to witness the soothing power of Buddhism in a classic setting. Since the early 1980s, numerous Buddhist countries have contributed significantly to the infrastructural development of ancient Lumbini, restoring its lost grandeur. Notably, the renowned architect Pro. Tange of Japan played a pivotal role in this transformation, earning Lumbini the accolades of being religious, peaceful, and beautiful.

Lumbini, now recognized as a Cultural World Heritage site, beckons with a unique charm. The master plan delineates four main components: the sacred Garden, housing the Maya Devi Temple and Ashoka Pillar; the monastic zone; the cultural center; and the Lumbini Village. Branded as the "Fountain of World Peace and the Holiest pilgrimage center for Buddhist and peace-loving people worldwide," Lumbini invites you to experience a classic pilgrim tour—a timeless journey that will linger in your thoughts.
