Lumbini Tour

    Personal Information

    Anyone who has heard about Buddha has probably heard about the Lumbini Tour as well. Lumbini is the birthplace of the divine lord, revered as the “Light of Asia”. The Lumbini tour is a highly visited pilgrimage for people all around the world. Every year, thousands of people travel to this holy sacred place. Moreover, It serves as a visual aid to the life of Buddha, and information on Buddhism too.

    Existing at a distance of 350 km. from Kathmandu, Lumbini is a beautiful garden. Buddha took his birth here, in 560 B.C. He was born on the way to Tilaurakot, where his mother Maya Devi, the queen of Kapilvastu, was traveling to her home, for her delivery. Legend has it that just after his birth, Buddha traveled 7 steps to the north. It is now visible as 7 lotus flowers looking in all directions. He showed signs of special characteristics and aura since his early childhood. Buddha stayed at Lumbini as a prince till the age of 29.

    Buddha Left Home – Lumbini Tour

    When he happened to encounter a diseased man, a decaying corpse, and an ascetic, which depressed him to the extent of abandoning his home, family and all his materialistic belongings. He starts to wander in search of wisdom. Years later, he turned back to his birthplace, after getting enlightened and visiting places all around Asia, preaching thoughts of truth and non-violence.

    At present, there are about 62 archaeological sites and numerous monasteries in Lumbini. One of the theists the Asoka pillar, was named after the great emperor Ashoka (an ancient emperor of the Maurya dynasty who ruled almost all of the Indian subcontinent from c.2,68 to 232 BCE.).

    Discovered in 1,896, this pillar is believed to mark the spot of Emperor Asoka’s visit to Lumbini. The site was not known as Lumbini before the pillar was discovered. According to an inscription on the pillar, it was placed there by the people then in charge of the park to commemorate Asoka’s visit and gifts. Lumbini was scripted as a World Heritage site by UNESCO in 1997.

    The Maya Devi temple, named after Gautam Buddha’s mother, is said to be the exact place where Buddha was born. There are drawings depicting his birth inside. The current white-washed temple was built to protect the older temple under it. Inside the temple are mud bricks and a small area looking down into a dug-out area which marks the exact place of birth. Around the temple is a sacred pool (known as Puskarni) and a sacred garden. The archaeological remains at the site were previously dated to the third century.

    Kapilvastu – Discover Spiritual Holy Place

    Kapilvastu is the then capital of the Shakya kingdom. Buddha was the heir of King Suddhodhan. It was at this place, where Buddha stayed as a prince till the age of 29, after which he left his home, family and all his materialistic belongings in search of wisdom. Twelve years later, after his enlightenment, he came back to his home and preached his sermons overhear. None of the temples or monuments at Lumbini were seriously affected by the 2015 earthquake.

    Tilaurakot – Lumbini Development Trust

    Tilaurakot is located at a distance of 24 km. to the west of Lumbini. It contains the remains of ancient Kapilvastu, the seat of the ancient Shakya kingdom and the childhood home of Prince Siddhartha. True it is that Tilaurakot receives far fewer visitors than Lumbini. Yet its ruins disagree to be less interesting.

    The remains include a couple of stupa bases, thick fortress walls and four gates. Other than a few palace ruins; there is numerous evidence of Buddha’s existence. It definitely is an ant-to-miss visit for Buddhists as well as historians and scholars. Book Lumbini Tour with Karma Eco Adventure Nepal and relish Buddhism in Nepal !!
