Lumbini Yoga Tour is mainly a spiritual tour in the place where Buddha was born more than two centuries ago. Being a spiritual place, Lumbini Yoga Tour is a very effective tour for doing yoga, Pranayam and meditation.

Buddha’s teaching focuses on doing everything for a yogic purpose. According to Buddhist philosophy, we should try to be in meditative mood whatever we do.

This yoga tour will be beneficial for our mental peace because Buddha is known as the ambassador of peace of Asia. Among the many religions of the world, Buddhism stands higher in the majority and in popularity.

As a progenitor of Buddhism, more than 2500 years ago, a child named Siddhartha Gautama was born in the palace of the Shakya Kingdom to the east of Kapilvastu where present Lumbini has situated this tour is for this Lumbini Yoga tour.

The child as being the prince by birth was certain would be King of the kingdom. However, the journey didn’t continue that way. The monarch rather converted into a monk. The monk realized the nirvana (enlightenment) in his mid-thirties.

The enlightened being was known as the Buddha, the trail-blazer of Buddhism in the world. For Hindu pilgrims, Buddha is the eighth incarnation of Lord Bishnu.

Relying on that belief, he is worshipped mutually by Hindu and Buddhist even though Buddhism and Hinduism have distinct philosophy and rituals.

The holy land of Buddhism and the birth of place of Buddha called Lumbini is located at about 22 kilometres to the west of Bhairahawa.

Lumbini lies around central southern lowland of Nepal named Rupandehi district. In this Lumbini Yoga Tour, we will complete the 4.8-kilometre distance covered by Lumbini.

As the World Heritage Site welcomed by UNESCO in 1997 AD, Lumbini has covered the area of 4.8 kilometres of length and 1.6 kilometres width.

The ancient architect and shrine called Maya Devi Temple is located at the centre of the big ground.  Maya Devi Temple is believed to be the place where his mother Queen Maya Devi had given birth to Siddhartha Gautama.

Besides the temple, there is located nearby the pond where Buddha’s mother would bath and he also had performed his first bath in this holy pond. The shadow of a magnanimous Bodhi tree also called Pipal in Nepali falls on the pond.

The Ashoka pillar located to the very west of the Maya Devi Temple is said to be the evidence of the visit of Maurya Samrat Ashoka in this hallowed land.

Lumbini Yoga tour consists of visiting multi-dozens monasteries and stupas in its precinct that you shouldn’t be surprised if you don’t complete your visit in a day. The Lumbini yoga tour has been separated in two sections.

The west section is for the Mahayan and Vajrayan tradition of Buddhism whereas the east zone of Lumbini tour has been occupied by the construction and monasteries of the Theravadin tradition.

The monasteries and stupas constructed by different Buddhist countries and sects are erected all around the site will be visited during this Lumbini Yoga Tour. Moreover, the number of monuments and monasteries are still in under construction.

Some Important Things To See in Lumbini Yoga Tour

1. The World Peace Pagoda

As a peace lover, if anything would allure you the most by its magnificent architect and the serene vibration that would be the World Peace Pagoda.

In spite of being away from the main compound of the site, it attracts many pilgrims and people to enjoy its tranquil wave and energy. From a considerable distance, you would see a gleaming and illuminating white monument.

The few minutes of walking distance from the shrine, you would see golden statue glittering on the middle section of the Pagoda.

That is the sculpture of Buddha depicting the time of his birth according to the Japanese Buddhists who donated for the construction of this mesmerizing site.

2. Maya Devi Temple

The interesting part of Lumbini Yoga Tour, The white coloured shrine is located to the west of the main gate where you buy a ticket. Keeping your shoes outside before entering into the garden of the Maya Devi Temple, you would get enthralled by the quietude and cleanliness.

The present-day Maya Devi Temple is believed to be the place where Buddha was born. To make the belief stronger, sandstone carving the birth of the Buddha has been protected there.

The sandstone is believed to be brought here by Ripu Malla, the Malla king of Kathmandu valley, in 14thcentury, the epoch Maya Devi used to be worshipped as the incarnation of the Hindu Goddess.

Within in a showcase of glass, a stone has been preserved beneath the sandstone which is regarded as the stone of the era of Buddha and the location where Buddha was born.

The excavation conducted in the temple shows the sign of timber structure laid beneath the walls of the newer brick structure. Above all, the essence and existence of Maya Devi Temple is as important as the significance and veneration of the Buddha and Buddhism has.

3. Ashoka Pillar

Maurya Samrat Ashoka is dated to have visited this blessed land in 249 BC. In honour and remembrance of his visit, King Ashoka constructed a pillar. For centuries, the place remained unknown and undiscovered.

In 1896, archaeologist Khadga Samsher Rana and his colleague Alois Anton Fuhrer discovered the pillar which became strong evidence that Lumbini was the birthplace of Lord Buddha.

Besides Maya Devi Temple, a 6-meter tall sandstone pillar stands still adoring the charm and magnificence of the site of this Lumbini Yoga Tour.
