Lumbini is a Buddhist pilgrimage site in the Rupandehi district of Nepal.

Lumbini is one of four magnets for pilgrimage that sprang up in places pivotal to the life of the Buddha, the others being at Kushinagar, Bodh Gaya, and Sarnath.

Lumbini is in the foothills of the Himalaya, 25 km east of the municipality of Kapilavastu, where the Buddha is said to have lived till the age of 29. Kapilvastu is the name of the place in question as well as of the neighboring district. Lumbini has a number of temples, including the Mayadevi temple and others. Also here is the Puskarini or Holy Pond. Where the Buddha's mother took the ritual dip prior to his birth and where he, too, had his first bath - as well as the remains of Kapilvastu palace.

There is a very old temple in the village of Namo Buddha, located below Thrangu Rinpoche’s land, which sits on the top of the mountain. Several lamas have determined that the actual site where the Buddha gave his body is actually on Thrangu Rinpoche’s property near the retreat center. There is a cave with statues of the prince, the tigress and the cubs on this site. Namo Buddha is otherwise known by Tibetans and people of the Himalayan regions as “Takmo Lu Jin”, which is literally “Tigress Body Generosity”.

During the course of this trip, you will be guided along the most popular places like Pharping. Which is an ancient renowned city situated in Southern Region of Kathmandu. It was popular with the name "Shikharapuri Mahanagari (Metropolitan City)" which was recognized as an independent state with 48000 people in ancient time. So "Shikharapur" is an ancient name of Pharping village. Shikharapur was independent Newari State when Gopaleshowr Temple was in the middle of Pharping. It was an established state at that time when Kathmandu Valley was a lake. It is said there was no existence of Kathmandu, Bhaktapur and Lalitpur. Later Goddess Manjushree cut the Chovar gorge and the water of valley flowed outside then after valley became suitable to stay. Hence, Pharping has its own ancient history, so, it is considered as a History of Village. It's also said that Great Gurus of Hinduism and Buddhism get enlightened at Pharping. It's also famous as a religious place. For example; Great Guru Padmasambhava got enlightened at Asura Cave, Gorakhanath and Sheshnarayan Cave at Pharping.

Best of Nepal Tour- A wonderful trip of our life
“We recently completed a ten day tour in and around Kathmandu, Nagarkot, Dhulikhel, Chitwan National Park, Lumbini and Pokhara. There is no question that this was one of the best and most interesting holidays we've ever taken. As an experience, the breadth and diversity was astonishing. We began in Kathmandu and stayed in Dwarikas (truly a great experience in itself - the building is like no other, dinner is fantastic and the outdoor barbeques by the pool are second to none). It took only really a couple of days to visit the various squares and temples and gain an appreciation of the fabulous architecture and wood carving, but then we were really there to see Everest. On the third day we stayed at Club Himalaya in Nagarkot, which is a fairly decent hotel, but in a wonderful situation. ”
