  • We visit a part of the Park in one day, he is huge. The setting is nice, quiet and clean. Some temples can be visited. If you like green spaces, architecture, Buddhist culture we recommend.

  • The birth place of Gautam Buddha is Lumbini Nepal close to Indian border and can be reached from Gorakhpur and also from Kathmandu and pokhara. It is a forest park being developed and well maintained ...  more »
  • It is a site, largely under construction, which roughly should accommodate monasteries for Buddhists from every nation, around the exact place of birth of Buddha. Disappointing experience.
