Nepal is home to the most important places of pilgrimage in Buddhism (Buddhist tour). One of these places is Lumbini where Gautam Buddha was born. Other pilgrimage sites of religious significance to the Buddhists are the Boudhanath Stupa, Swayambhunath Stupa, Kapan Monastery, and Namo Buddha.
Lumbini is the holy site where Buddha was born. In the ruins of ancient Lumbini, we find a sacred tree, the Ashoka pillar, a bathing pond, and the Mayadevi temple, where the exact spot of Buddha’s birth is located. As of 1997, Lumbini is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The Boudhanath stupa is one of the holiest and largest Stupas in the world. In 1979 it was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Over 50 Gompas surround this Stupa located in the Eastern part of Kathmandu.
Swayambhunath is probably the most sacred site for pilgrimage in Buddhism. It is also known as the Monkey Temple because a number of holy monkeys live in and around the temple premises. The Stupa sits atop a small hill in Kathmandu and is surrounded by small shrines and temples.
Namo Buddha is believed to be the place where Lord Buddha had once offered his life to a starving Tigress and her cubs. Namo Buddha which is located 40 kilometers from Kathmandu is also one of the most famous Buddhist pilgrimages in Kathmandu.
