Description
Located in the southern part of west Nepal, listed in World Heritage Site, Lumbini is one of the most popular places in the world for the tourists mainly Buddhists. The place is very famous for mediation and peacefulness. This is the lord Buddha’s birthplace where are many things to see like monasteries made by many different countries where one can spend time for meditation, Ashok Pillar made by the great Indian Emperor Ashok in 245BC, Sacred pond where Maya Devi took bath just before giving birth to Lord Buddha, newly build Maya Devi temple and peaceful gardens etc. Some side trips can be done to Tilaurakot where Buddha grew up as the prince, Sunauli- the Indian border, Tansen- the view point of the Kanjirowa, Dhaulagiri, Annapurna, Manaslu, Ganesh Himal and Langtang Himalayan range.

People who are interested for meditation, exploring Nepalese and Indian mix-culture, researching on the Lesser Himalaya, Outer Himalaya and the plain lowland, to know more about Lord Buddha or making film of the Lord Buddha from his origin place and who do not like hike so much as a trekker in the mountain, Lumbini can be better choice for them.
