The Lumbini Circuit Tour provides insight into the life of Lord Buddha and the development
of Buddhism. There are 62 archaeological sites scattered outside the Lumbini. The tour goes
though Tilaurakot, Kudan, Gotihawa, Niglihawa, Sagarhawa, Aurorakot, Devadaha and
Ramagrama all bearing significance to the life, Enlightenment and death of Buddha.
Archaeologists have identified Tilaurakot as the actual capital of Kapilvastu and the home of
King Suddhodhan, father of Prince Siddhartha who later went on to become the Buddha. This
is believed to be the place where Lord Buddha spent the first 29 years of his princely life.
Chinese travelers who visited Tilaurakot more than 2500 years ago reported seeing numerous
stupas, monasteries and places. The Chinese pilgrims Fa-Hien and Hien and Hiuen-Tsang
noted that they saw Kapilvastu in complete ruins and counted 10 deserted cities within
Kapilvastu. King Virudhaka, who massacred the Shakyas during the last days of Lord
Buddha, is said to have destroyed the cities.
A walk through the villages surrounding Lumbini interaction with the warm and hospitable
local people, buying their authentic handicraft products and observing their traditional rituals
will bring one closer to understanding the diversity of Terai cultures in Nepal. Tour of villages
also gives opportunity to observe Terai landscapes and vegetation found in the outskirts of the
settlements. The people in these traditional villages offer a peek at their agro-based rural
lifestyles, colorful costume, festivals that they celebrate with much joy and enthusiasm and
gracious hospitality. They belong to different religions, cast and creed, with agriculture as
main occupation. The main festivals celebrated by the people are Nag Panchami, Holi,
Dashain and Tihar. Tourists can visit the local temples and mosques or partake in the cultural
ceremonies. The wetland areas, lakes and ponds in the villages also offer bird watching
opportunities. Visitors have the option of choosing to walk through the villages, riding
