Image Not Found

Duration : 10 Nights / 11 Days
Places Covered: Delhi or Calcutta - Patna - Nalanda - Rajgir - Bodhgaya - Varanasi - Kushinagar - Lumbini - Balrampur - Lucknow - Delhi - Agra
Budhha Siddharth Gautam, born the son of a king, grew up in Kapilvastu amidst luxury and splendour. At the age of 29 he left earthly distraction behind, to begin his quest for the true meaning of life -a search that took him to the land of Magadha. At Bodhgaya, after years of penance and deprivation, he attained "Enlightenment" under the sacred Bodhi tree-to become Buddha. In the fabled deer park at Sarnath, the Buddha preached his first sermon. He then travelled widely preaching his philosophy. At the age of 80, in the forest of Kushinagar, he entered perfect tranquillity-the state of "Parinirvana." Lumbini, Bodhgaya, Sarnath, Kushinagar, Sravasti, Vaishali and Kapilvastu- these sacred places of Buddha continue the legacy of this remarkable being who practiced and preached peace, purity and love. We invite you now to this special world one not just of spectacular temples, monasteries and stupas but where you may actually walk in the footsteps of "The Enlightened One"-the man, who changed the world.
