the Places of all High Significance Holy Sites
of Buddhism; where Lord Buddha was born, attained
Enlightenment, preached first Sermon and reached
Lumbini, Bodhgaya, Sarnath and Kushinagar
are the primary pilgrimage places of Buddhist
Circuits associated with the life and teachings
of the Lord Buddha. There are numerous other
sites where the Buddha and the saints that
followed traveled during his life after his
transformation, which are held in deep veneration.
Visitors can travel through this Buddhist
Circuit today, to savor the splendid beauty
and great appeal of Buddhism.
The greatest impetus to Buddha's teachings
came from the Indian King Ashoka who went
on a great pilgrimage visiting the important
sites that are directly associated with his
life, in the Footsteps of Lord Buddha. Primary
amongst these holy places are Lumbini in Nepal,
and Bodhgaya, Sarnath and Kushinagar in India.
There are other places of lesser significance
on the Footsteps of Lord Buddha visitor circuit
associated closely with Buddha's life.
Amongst these are Buddha's monsoon retreats
of Vaishali, Rajgir and Sravastii in India,
and his early home at Tilaurakot in Kapilavastu
