Nepal holiday ideas experiences accommodation places to go when to visit nepal map reviews


Lumbini (Sanskrit for "the lovely") is the birthplace of the Buddha and the source not just of one of the world’s primary religions, but is also the site of one of Nepal's most significant archeological attractions. It is a major sight of pilgrimage for Buddhists.

The area around Lumbini is close to the border with India and has long been a predominantly Muslim region, but for over thirty years the area has been developed as a religious park.Temples and monasteries from around the Buddhist world have been built within the park, and the protected wetlands and forests of the park have attracted many birds and animals. At the centre of the park, the Maya Devi Mandir marks the site of the birthplace of the Buddha, and is the oldest archeological site in Nepal, dating from 300 BC. There are also several archeological and pilgrimage sites relating to the Buddha’s life around Lumbini.
