    INFO

    The Kudan Tilaurakot Niglihawa Gotihawa day tour from Kathmandu offers a visit to the following sacred Buddhist sites around Lumbini.

    Tilaurakot

    Tilaurakot is 28km west of Lumbini, known as ancient Kapilvastu, where Siddhartha Gautama (Buddha) lived for 29 years. It’s situated on the banks of the Banganga River and is a significant spiritual and historical site. If you can find the time, visit the museum too.

    Gotihawa

    Located just 5km southwest of Taulihawa, Gotihawa is a sacred Buddhist site in Lumbini. It is believed that Krakuchhanda Buddha, one of the previous Buddhas, was born and attained enlightenment here. In 249 BC, the great Emperor Asoka visited and erected a stone pillar and a large stupa in honor of Krakuchhanda Buddha.

    Niglihawa

    Niglihawa – Birth place of Kanakmani Buddha is about 7km northeast of Taulihawa. Emperor Asoka (Indian king) visited in 249 BC and placed a stone pillar with inscriptions. It shows, he enlarged the stupa, worshiped it, and marked the birthplace of Kanakamuni Buddha during his 20th year as emperor. The pillar also has an inscription from King Ripu Malla (Nepalese king) in 1312 AD.

    Sagarhawa

    Sagarhawa is located approximately 6 miles north of Tilaurakot palace. It contains the remains of thousands of stupas built for members of the Shakya clan who were killed during the third war against the Shakya Kingdom led by King Virudhaka of Kosala during Gautam Buddha’s time. It is believed that the Buddha asked him not to attack the Shakya Kingdom twice, but he did not heed the warning the third time

    Kudan

    Nyigrodharama, now known as Kudan or Lori-Ki Kudan, is an ancient site 3km south of Taulihawa. It’s a important Buddhist site in Lumbini because after Buddha became enlightened, he returned to his hometown but didn’t visit his palace. He met his father, son, relatives and friends in Kudan, where it’s believed he gave a sermon. Some scholars think it’s also where Krakuchhanda Buddha was born.

    Sisahaniya

    Sisahaniya is an important archaeological site from the Maurya-Kushan era. It is believed that the Sakyas built a fort and a Buddhist monastery containing a precious corporeal relic of the Buddha, which they had received as one-eighth of their share. However, the relic was eventually taken away. An excavation team led by Prof. Giovanni Verardi, along with some Nepalese scholars, found important evidence such as iron pieces, pottery, and terra-cotta figurines from the Kusana Period.

    Is there a single supplement charge?

    The displayed rate is based on two persons. If you are travelling alone, you need to bear the all sharing cost by yourself. So, there will be an extra single supplement charges. More numbers of participant will decrease the trip fare.

    How are the dining (lunch) facilities during the trip?

    This Tilaurakot Kudan tour is not as popular as the Lumbini tour because it’s not included in the travel plans of most tourists and travel agents, it remains overshadowed by Lumbini. Due to its location and fewer tourists visiting, it is hard to find convenient restaurants for lunch. So, It is suggested to bring a packed lunch or snacks.

    We had a fantastic tour around Lumbini with our guide, Manish. He was very knowledgeable about Buddhist history and the places we visited. Tilaurakot, Kudan, and Niglihawa are must-visit places when you are in Lumbini.
