  • In Lumbini monastic zone, only monasteries can be built and no shops, hotels or restaurants are allowed. It is separated into an eastern and western monastic zones. Need to good time to visit all the monasteries. This particulate Temple, Maya Devi, is birth place of Buddha. [I have added other monasteries photos here as well, as it is really confusing for me monastery-wise photo uploading).
  • Its totally worth it!! Such a soothing place with pure spiritual vibes. Specially, do visit the place during evening after 5, you will love i!
