Lumbini Lord Buddha birth place tour, a pleasant and serene spot of Nepal flat land of Terai belt, where Lord Buddha famously known as the ‘Light of Asia’ was born on the very spot way back in May year 642 B.C.

The birth name of Buddha as Siddhartha Gautama was known to be Buddha (A man of great Wisdom and Enlighten) where Buddha had announced his famous word "This is my final rebirth" as he entered the world.

Buddhist tradition also has it that he walked immediately after his birth and took seven steps, under each of which a lotus flower bloomed.

In 249 BC, the Buddhist convert Emperor Asoka visited Lumbini and constructed four stupas and a stone pillar. Asoka’s Pillar bears an inscription that translates as: "King Piyadasi (Asoka), beloved of Devas, in the 20 year of the coronation, himself made a royal visit, Buddha Sakyamuni having been born here, a stone railing was built and a stone pillar erected to the Bhagavan ["blessed one"] having been born here. Lumbini village was taxed reduced and entitled to the eight parts (only)".

The site was rediscovered in 1895, when a German archaeologist came upon Asoka’s Pillar, identified by its inscription. Records made by the Chinese pilgrim Fa Xian were also used in the process of identifying this religiously acclaimed site. Lumbini was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997.
