Buddha was born and brought up in the country of Nepal where he left his marks on the pilgrim location of Lumbini. Nepal is a haven for Buddhists and other people alike with a need to carefully observe the Buddhist traditions, norms, practices and pilgrim locations strewn beautifully across the entire country. Syambunath, the sacred self originated Buddhist shrine, the world’s biggest stupa, the Boudahanath, Kapa, the Tibetan monastery, Lumbini, the birth place of Buddha, Tilaurakot, the archaeologically important Buddhist pilgrimage location etc are the major pilgrim destinations for observing Buddhism closely.
The Buddhist Pilgrimage tour starts from the capital of Nepal Kathmandu. The first and the second days can be devoted completely into sightseeing around Syambunath, Boudhanath and Kapan monasteries. Namo Buddha, the sacred peaceful monastery can be visited on the third day along with the visit to the Vihara Jana Bahal Mahabouddha, Hiranya Varna Mahavir, Rudra Varna Mahavir and many other stupas situated in the Patan City. The fourth day is used for a drive to Lumbini and the sightseeing around Lumbini can be done the next day. This birthplace of Buddha, where he spent his first 26 years, is full of archaeological remains of his kingdom. The Mayadevi temple, devoted to Buddha’s mother, the Ashoka Pillar with carvings indicating Buddha’s birth, the sacred bathing pool of Puskarni are all sights that take you back into the historic days following Buddha’s birth.
