  • Large area, but rents a bike, walking slowly, it's a good idea to look around dolabogeona. Where peace is filled with wildflowers, I'm also flying butterfly fairy tale-like two-day/one-night guests during mind heh heh, so peaceful.

  • You might want to take your mat and relax up there. Sounds of birds chirping and wind blowing is everything. White pagoda in itself is relaxing to your eyes.
  • In October, dont go too late. Frying hot!! 36C outside, still air and no relief from the heat. The pagoda is nice tho.

  • The world peace pagoda is situated in lumbini Nepal. It was constructed by Nipponzan Myohoji monks in November 2001. The surrounding is very clean, beautiful and peaceful. This pagoda is at the other sides. people often visit to this place first after coming to lumbini premises.
  • One place where the serenity engulfs you and fills you with joy. Very close to Buddha Birth Place, a must visit if you are in Nepal.

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.
