Description

The famous Buddhist pilgrimage site, Lumbini is located in the Rupandehi district of Province No. 5 in Nepal. It is a holy place where Lord Buddha was born. Lumbini is renowned all over the world as the birth place of Gautam Buddha, the light of Asia. Following Buddhist tradition, Lumbini is the place where Queen Mahamaya Devi gave birth to Siddhartha Gautam in 563 BC. Siddhartha Gautam achieved enlightenment, became Buddha and founded Buddhism. Lumbini is one of the world's most important spiritual sites which attracts Buddhist pilgrims from around the world. Today, we can visit over 25 Buddhist monasteries built by diverse countries from Vietnam to France. People come to Lumbini to study Buddhism, meditate and visit the birthplace within the sacred Mayadevi Gardens.

Mayadevi Temple is the most sacred site in the Lumbini Garden where archaeologists have identified the exact spot where Queen Maya Devi gave birth to her son, later known as Lord Buddha. Inscriptions on the Ashoka Pillar nearby also indicate the spot as his birthplace. It is believed that the newly born Prince Siddhartha (later became the Buddha) took his first seven steps and delivered his peace message to humanity.

Nepal’s second largest city in terms of population and the largest city in terms of area, Pokhara is a perfect place for taking a break from our monotonous life. It is also the second most visited cities in Nepal after Kathmandu. Pokhara is a metropolitan city of Nepal and is also the capital of Gandaki Pradesh. Pokhara is located 200 km west from Kathmandu. Pokhara is considered the tourism capital of Nepal, being a base for trekkers taking the path of  Annapurna Circuit through the Annapurna Conservation Area region of the Annapurna ranges in the Himalayas. The city is also home to a large number of the Gurkha soldiers. Pokhara is famous for its tranquility and countryside vibes.

Three mountains out of the ten highest mountains in the world can be seen from Pokhara, namely: Dhaulagiri, Annapurna and Manaslu. The view of Macchapuchre with its pointed peak symbolizing fishtail is the icon of the city. Pokhara has a lot of places that tourists like to observe. Lakeside is the main point of the city where people gather to take a walk around the shores of the Phewa Lake. Area around the lakeside is full of art and crafts, interesting shops and sidewalk vendors. Colorful wooden boats add color to the beauty of lake and paragliders come floating down from above. Flying and rowing over the lake is probably going to be one of the highlights of tourists’ travel experience in Nepal. Visitors can worship at the Tal Barahi Temple located on the island of Phewa Lake.One can catch a boat and reach there by paying about Rs.60 for one way boat and Rs.10 for the life jacket.

Apart from temples and historical sites, Pokhara also holds a lot of good ambience based restaurants which offer a great view of city. People of all age group enjoy the good food and ambience around Pokhara for a memorable and fantastic trip.
