Lumbini-An Introduction

Contrary to the typical view of Nepal being linked mainly with hills and snowy peaks, Lumbini reveals a unique terrain marked by flat grasslands and lush green expanses. Renowned as one of the most sacred sites in Buddhism, Lumbini symbolizes a significant global faith and has been acknowledged as a UNESCO World Heritage site since 1997. The sacred gardens in Lumbini witnessed the birth of Siddhartha Gautama in 623 B.C.

Historical Significance

Lumbini, recognized as the birthplace of Siddhartha Gautama, commonly known as Buddha, stands as a monumental historical site. The Maya Devi Temple, serving as a symbol of this sacred event, draws pilgrims worldwide. This revered location holds profound significance for Buddhists and global peace advocates. Pilgrims, especially from Sri Lanka, Myanmar, Vietnam, Cambodia, and Thailand, aspire to visit Lumbini and pay homage to the sacred birthplace. Ancient stupas and monasteries add to Lumbini’s restored park’s historical allure and surroundings. A massive stone pillar, erected by Emperor Ashoka around 250 BC, bears an inscription about Buddha’s birth. Central to the Lumbini experience, the Maya Devi temple depicts a stone-carved scene of Maya Devi giving birth to Lord Buddha, underscoring tales of barren women seeking fertility through worn strokes.

Ideal Time to Explore 

Situated in the southern region of Nepal, Lumbini experiences sweltering summer temperatures that can reach nearly 40 degrees Celsius. For a pleasant and comfortable exploration of the monasteries, the optimal periods to plan your visit are from April to May, October to November, or December to February. During these months, temperatures range from a mild 12 to 28 degrees Celsius, ensuring an enjoyable and suitable environment for your Lumbini adventure.
