Lumbini

Trip Planner Asia  /  Nepal  /  Western Region  /  Lumbini Zone  /  Lumbini
An important place of Buddhist pilgrimage, Lumbini represents the birthplace of Siddhartha Gautama, the Buddha. The sacred place has been protected as a World Heritage Site, and centers around the main temple, built on the spot where Siddhartha was born. Buddhist sects and groups from across the world have built temples, pagodas, and gardens here, all displaying a distinctive national or regional style, but coming together to form an impressive and inspiring whole. Rent a bike during your trip to Lumbini to see all the main temples at your own speed. Customize your holiday with our Nepal route builder app to create an adventure that suits you.

Places to visit with Lumbini

Where to stay in Lumbini

As with many important places of pilgrimage, you'll find a good mix of accommodations in Lumbini, with very basic options alongside some luxury hotels. Plenty of accommodations sit to the east of the temple complex, in the area surrounding Lumbini Market Road. Palatial hotels share streets with humble hostels, with both styles offering good access to the main attractions in town. Consider staying in one of the monasteries here for a particularly atmospheric and authentic visit, with dorm rooms available.
