Buddha was born some 2500 years ago in Lumbini, in southern Nepal. Lumbini is the greatest pilgrimage site for all the Buddhists from all over the world. Lumbini today houses the pond where Buddha was bathed after he was born and a temple which has images of young Buddha with his mother. There is also a Stone pillar which is one of such many pillars put by the famous Indian emperor Ashoka to mark the important sites related to Buddha's life. In an excavation made a few years ago more objects of historical importance were discovered which are on display for all. Besides that, there are many stupas in Lumbini made by many Buddhist countries of the world.
There are Buddhists all over Nepal and hence Buddhist monuments are all over Nepal. In Kathmandu valley, we have 2000 years old impressive stupa of Swayambhunath and world's biggest stupa at Boudhanath. The Boudhanath stupa is 1500 years old and is more popular among the many Tibetan refugees living in Kathmandu. Inside the Kathmandu valley, the city of Patan is dominantly Buddhists and has places like Mahaboudha Temple and Hiranya Varna Mahavihar to show you. On the outskirt of Kathmandu on the hill is the stupa of Namobuddha, small but old, active and highly revered.
This tour will take you to these Buddhist sites and also a few more while travelling inside the city. We will also take you to the peaceful and beautiful lake city of Pokhara. Here you can see the tremendous view of the Himalayas, visit the world peace stupa and go for boating in the cool lake water. Finally, you will have free time to shop a great number of Buddhist objects which you may not find in your home country.
