Buddhist Pilgrimage Tour
Tour Overview

As the fourth largest world religion, Buddhism has made a strong base in the continent of Asia. Overall, it is preceded by Hinduism, Islam and Christianity in the entire globe. Founded in the northern part of India by Siddhartha Gautama Buddha, this religion is practised by those that are seekers of non-violence, peace and love in the world. Gautama Buddha was born in 563 B.C. in the Lumbini region of present-day Nepal. When he reached 29 years of age, he quit his family (wife and children) along with all the political affairs of his kingdom to find out about ‘truth’. In those days this practice of leaving one’s family to become an ascetic was well-accepted in the society. After studying Brahmanism for some time he rejected it and in 535 B.C. he took the ‘Buddha’ title which means ‘the awakened one’. In the present day, Lord Buddha’s birthplace and the place where he received enlightenment (Bodh Gaya, Bihar) are visited by many devotees, mostly from places like China, Vietnam, Japan, Korea, Mongolia, Nepal and Sri Lanka.
