Lumbini is popular among Buddhist pilgrimage tours in Nepal.  Lumbini package tour offers an incredible lifetime experience for pilgrimage travelers. Lumbini, the birthplace of Gautam Buddha is not only famous for Buddhist pilgrimage travelers alone but also popular for having views of the beautiful architecture namely of Maya Devi temple, Ashok stupa, Lumbini Budhha garden, and more than 22 countries’ monasteries. Lumbini is listed on the World Heritage Monument List by UNESCO. Lumbini holds historical and religious significance in Nepal.

Ashoka Pillar-built in the year 259BC, this pillar was built by King Ashok, who was a Buddhist. When he constructed this pillar, the King exempted the villagers from paying taxes and gave out 100 golden coins to the people. In the seventh century, the pillar was struck by lightning and split into two parts. The site was lost for six centuries and covered with dense forest before being re-found in 1895. The place was cleared and the pillar reconstructed. Maya Devi Temple-This temple is supposed to be dedicated to Maya Devi, who is Buddha’s mother, which seems natural as Lumbini is famed as the birthplace of Buddha. The temple was built during the 2nd century. Next to the temple, there is a pool where Maya Devi used to bathe. The Crane Sanctuary - a sanctuary is being built for the protection and breeding of endangered cranes in this area. It’s an interesting place to visit. The Sacred Garden - is the beautiful area around the Asoka pillar where you can spend sometimes, relaxing and wandering around.

The most important Buddhist celebration at Lumbini is the annual Buddha Jayanti festival in April or May when many Buddhists come here to celebrate the birth of the Buddha. Pilgrims also come here to worship each Purnima (the night of the full moon) and Ashtami (the eighth night after the full moon).
