Major Attractions in Lumbini Tour

Maya Devi Temple:
The Maya Devi Temple is a simple building located in a sacred garden where Queen Maya Devi is believed to have given birth to Siddhartha Gautama, who later became Buddha. It has a stone carving that shows the Buddha’s birth under a special tree.

Ashoka Pillar:
The Ashoka Pillar, also called the Ashoka Column, is a set of tall stone columns created by the Indian Emperor Ashoka around 2300 years ago. These columns have inscriptions in ancient scripts that confirm Lumbini as Buddha’s birthplace.

Pushkarini Pond:
Pushkarini Pond gets its name from the Sanskrit word “Pushkara,” which means lotus. Lotus flowers are sacred in Hinduism, symbolizing purity and beauty. This is where Buddha’s mother, Maya Devi, used to take baths, and it’s also where Buddha had his first bath.

World Peace Pagoda:
The World Peace Pagoda is a large white stupa (a type of Buddhist monument) in the northern part of Lumbini. It was built by Japanese Buddhists and stands as a symbol of global peace. From the top of the pagoda, you can see the nearby Crane Sanctuary.

Gotihawa is an ancient site believed to be the birthplace of Krakuchhanda Buddha in Kapilvastu. Archaeologists have found the base of an Ashoka Pillar here, suggesting it might be the original base for another pillar that’s a few miles away. This pillar has inscriptions made by Ashoka.

Lumbini Museum:
The Lumbini Museum is a modern museum dedicated to the early life of Buddha and his path to enlightenment. It’s housed in a unique brick building designed by the famous Japanese architect Kenzo Tange, originally built in the 1970s but now being redesigned for a more contemporary experience.d
