ItineraryDay 1: Kathmandu to Lumbini drive Pass By: Outdoor Himalayan Treks - Private Day Tours, Kathmandu, Kathmandu Valley, Bagmati Zone, Central RegionThis is the main office of the service provider, where the travelers will meet with the guide and their transport. Then they will proceed for Lumbini. Meals included: • BreakfastAccommodation included: Overnight at a 4 Star category hotel. Day 2: Lumbini ExplorationStop At: Lumbini Monastic Site, Lumbini, Lumbini Zone, Western RegionWe make a detailed exploration of Lumbini today. The center of curiosity is, of course, the Maya Devi temple. The temple houses the nativity sculpture, depicting Buddha’s birth, and the marker stone, which pinpoints the location where Buddha first touched the ground. Since the marker stone and its foundation date back to the 3rd century B.C. and since it is mentioned in the Ashokan Pillar as a marker of the precise location of Buddha’s birth, archeologists point to it as very reliable evidence. Outside the temple is the Puskarni pond, where Maya Devi had taken a bath before delivery and where Buddha was given the first bath. And then there are the ruins of the Stupas dating from 8th century A.D. to 3rd century B.C. And if you get enough time afterwards, there are plenty of monasteries built by different nations in the monastic zone. You can also consider making a visit to nearby villages, where you will notice the truly peasant life and culture of the people living in the plains. Duration: 5 hoursMeals included: • BreakfastAccommodation included: Overnight at a 4 Star category hotel.Day 3: Visit Gotihawa and Tilaurakot via Kudan and return to Lumbini Stop At: Lumbini Monastic Site, Lumbini, Lumbini Zone, Western RegionEach of these places, namely, Gotihawa, Tilaurakot and Kudan, holds special significance. Gotihawa is believed to be the birthplace of Krakuchanda Buddha, the former incarnation of Guatama the Buddha. Its importance, like that of Lumbini, was recognized by the ancient Indian emperor Ashoka who had built a pillar here as well. You can see a lot of brick remains of stupas and monasteries in this village. Kudan’s importance cannot be simply exaggerated because it was the place where King Suddhodhana had met Buddha after his enlightenment. Finally Tilaurakot was the capital of King Suddhodhana’s kingdom in the ancient time. It was the place where Buddha had spent 29 years of his life.
