Lumbini Tour 2 nights 3 days package.

Lumbini is the birthplace of Lord Buddha. It is situated 300 km away from Kathmandu in Rupandehi District of Southern Terai Nepal (lowland), at an altitude of 600 ft. above sea level. Lumbini, respected by all religious people especially Buddhist. In 1998, Lumbini was declared as the Fountain of world peace and the pilgrimage for all the peace loving people of the world. Lord Buddha was born in Lumbini in 6th B.C. Lumbini is one of the popular tourist destination of Nepal. More than 400,000 people visit Lumbini every year. Taking this in consideration and to ensure that the benefit of tourism goes to the local community as well, cultural and religious tourism has been developed and promoted in the region.

The Lumbini Circuit Tour provides insight into the life of Lord Buddha and the development of Buddhism. There are many archaeological sites have been built around the Lumbini Garden. The tour goes through Tilaurakot, Kudan, Gotihawa, Niglihawa, Sagarhawa, Aurorakot, Devadaha and Ramagrama all bearing significance to the life, enlightenment and death of Buddha. 

Some important places in Lumbini are: 

The Lumbini Garden : This is the site marked by a certain stone pillar erected by the Indian Emperor Ashoka at about 245 B.C. The most important discovery in this place is a stone marked to suggest the exact birthplace of Buddha. 

Mayadevi Temple : This temple, dedicated to the mother of lord Buddha- Maya Devi, was excavated a few years ago. Many sculptures and carving in which the figures and designs are only slightly projecting from their background are seen here. 

Pushkarni pond : This is the pond where Mayadevi is said to have had a bath before giving birth to Buddha.

Tilaurakot : Tilaurakot has been identified by archaeologists as the actual capital of Kapilvastu and the home of King Suddhodhan, father of Prince Siddhartha who later went on to become the Buddha. This is believed to be the place where Lord Buddha spent the first 29 years of his princely life. Chinese travelers who visited Tilaurakot more than 2500 years ago repoted seeing numerous stupas, monasteries and palaces. The Chinese pilgrims Fa-Hien and Hiuen - Tsang noted that they saw Kapilvastu in complete ruins and counted 10 deserted cities within Kapilvastu. King Virudhaka, who massacred the Shakyas during the last days of Lord Buddha, is said to have destroyed the cities. It is located around 27 kms west of Lumbini and 3 Kms from Taulihawa town, a joint effort by Nepali and Japanese archaeologists recovered the royal town of Tilaurakot.

Kudan : Kudan is located around 4.5 kms south of Tilaurakot. It is a huge mound of structural ruins and a pond nearby appears to be the ruins of stupas and monasteries. There are believed to be the Kasaya Stupa, where a Kasaya (yellow robe worn by monks) was presented to Lord Buddha. This is where King Suddhodhana met Lord Buddha for the first time after he returned from cosmic enlightenment.

Gotihawa : Gotihawa is located around 3 kms southwest of Taulihawa. This is an important religious site for the Buddhist world community and is also historically and archaeologically important. It is believed that Krakuchanda Buddha, who came before Shakyamuni Buddha, was born in Gotihawa and attained Nirvana there. Brick structures of stupas and monasteries can be seen in the area outside modern Gotihawa village. At the center of the main mound the remains of a broken Ashokan Pillar lie on a slab. Adjoining the pillar on the northeast side is a huge stupa with rings of wedge-shaped ancient bricks, identifying the Nirvana Stupa of Krakuchanda Buddha. The villages are still using an ancient well in the center of the village. The development of the site is believed to have started in the 6th century B.C.

Niglihawa : Niglihawa is a significant archaeological site about 7 kms north of Taulihawa where the remains of a broken Ashokan Pillar lie close to a large pond. Emperor Ashoka built a stupa and set up a pillar when he visited the site during his pilgrimage. Discovered by renowned archaeologist, Dr. Alois Fuhrer in 1895, this pillar is 15 feet tall with inscriptions on its upper portion. It is believed that Kanakmuni Buddha was born, enlightened and met his father in this place and is regarded as a very important religious place for Buddhists and research scholars.

Sagarhawa : Sagarhawa is about 12 kms north of Taulihawa. Sagarhawa is the forest site where the ruins of an ancient pond were excavated in 1895. Archaeologists have identified this site as the "Palace of the Massacre of the Shakyas". The ruins of the ancient site lie on the west and south banks of the large rectangular pond locally known as Lumbu Sagar or long pong in Niglihawa Village. 

Aurorakot : Aurorakot is about 10 kms northeast of Taulihawa. Aurorakot is a large rectangular fortified area with the remains of an ancient moat and brick fortifications east of Niglihawa. A walled fortress in ancient times, this citadel was believed to be the natal town of Kanakmuni Buddha.

Devdaha : Devdaha, 54 kms east of Lumbini across the Rohini river, is the ancient capital of the Koliya Kingdom. It is the maternal hometown of Queen Mayadevi, Prince Siddhartha's mother, Prajapati Gautami, his stepmother, and Princess Yasodhara, his consort. Thisis where Prince Siddhartha spent his childhood. Seven years after his enlightenment, Lord Buddha visited Devdaha and ordained the followers of Jain Sadhu Nirgrantha Nathputra. There are several other sites around Devdaha such as Kumarbarti, Khayardanda, Bairimai/Kanyamai, Bhabanipur/Devidamar, Mathagadi (ancient weapons). 

Ramagram : It is believed to be the maternal home of Buddha. This is where we can see the biggest stupa, with important relics. It is said that it was built around 600 B.C. Ramagram is a brick mound on the bank of the Jharahi River. It is a 7 meters high brick stupa containing one of the eight Astha Dhatu (relics) of Lord Buddha.

Bardia National Park

Bardia National Park is Nepal’s most westerly, and the largest of its seven National Parks. A haven for a wide variety of wildlife, the park was originally formed to protect the various ecosystems found in the area, and to conserve tigers and their prey. The Park has since expanded to become one of the finest in Nepal. Lush dense forests, savannah and riverine woodlands are home to an incredibly diverse range of flora and fauna. Endangered species such as Rhinoceros, Wild elephant, Tiger, Swamp deer, Gharial crocodile, Gangetic dolphin, Bengal florican and the Sarus crane are all found here.

The History of the Park

parks origins began in the late 1960's when some 368 sq kms were set aside as royal hunting grounds. However, It wasn't until 1982 that the Royal Bardia National Reserve was officially formed, and even then it didn't become a fully fledged National Park until 1988. The aim was to preserve the diversity of decreasing species, in particular the tiger and its natural prey species.

Over 1400 people living in the area, many of them farmers, were removed to provide a greater area for the abundant species within the park. A buffer zone and community forest were established around the park to try to reduce subsistence poaching inside the park by the local communities. Without so much human interference the diverse habitats inside the park have improved greatly. Bardia's relatively remote location has meant the Park has enjoyed minimum impact from tourism, and though access has improved significantly over recent years, visitor numbers are still much lower than Nepal's most famous park, Chitwan.

It wasn't until the mid 90's that basic facilities for travelers began to appear. Since then, tourism has started to increase and there now are a variety of lodges to choose from one to another. To date the impact of visiting travelers has been minimal and the experience for a visitor is very different to than in Chitwan National Park as you feel much closer to nature and completely removed from bright lights shops, restaurants, bars and traffic.
