Although a way away from the main tourist track, just 250 km away from Kathmandu, Lumbini features some of Nepal’s most interesting historical and religious sites. It is the birthplace of Siddhartha Gautama, the historic Buddha, known as Buddha Shakyamuni.
The Maya Devi Temple, dedicated to Buddha’s mother, is believed to be the spot where Buddha was born. It contains an ancient stone relic from the 2nd century AD depicting Buddha’s birth. A UNESCO world heritage site, Lumbini boasts a sprawling complex of temples and shrines in an astonishing diversity of architectural styles from across Asia.
