Buddhist Pilgrimage Tour of Incredible India and Nepal incorporates some of the most sacred sites that depict the entire life of Lord Buddha. On this 13 days pilgrimage tour, you follow the path incorporating from birth to the final years of Lord Buddha.
Lord Buddha (Siddhartha Gautam), often regarded as the Light of Asia, was born to Queen Maya Devi and King Suddhodana at roughly around 563 BCE at Lumbini. This tour also includes Bodhgaya, where Price Siddhartha attained enlightenment after 6 strict years of focused mediation and thus was honored by the name Buddha, which literally means the enlightened one.
Buddha is a purified soul at an ideal state of intellectual and ethical perfection achieved purely by human means.
Throughout this tour, you are taken to an old sacred fig tree (Bodhi tree) where Buddha accomplished enlightenment. This place is very popular and is visited by many Buddhist followers.
