Back Previous Next Lumbini


Lumbini is one of the most important places for Buddhism because Prince Siddhartha Gautama was born in this place in 563 BC, a historical figure known to the whole world as the Buddha. Interestingly, this fact was rediscovered after a long time of oblivion only in 1896 when a pillar erected around 3rd century BC by the Buddhist emperor Ashoka was found, on which is an inscription that testifies to the birthplace of Buddha. Lumbini is located in an area where it is forbidden to build anything except monasteries, so you will not find hotels, restaurants, and shops here. However, every year, in addition to a large number of pilgrims, the number of tourists visiting Lumbini is growing.
