Rediscover the sanctity of the land of Buddha. This tour is specially designed to trace the footsteps of Gautam Buddha. Through the remains of monasteries and gardens, through the dusty plains to the Himalayan foothills, treading the sites long sanctified by Buddha, in an eternal quest to unravel the complex truths of life. Absorb the aura of solemn grandeur that surrounds Bodhgaya - the cradle of enlightenment. Here more than 2500 years ago came Siddhartha, a young ascetic, having renounced royal heritage. As he gazed across the river Phalgu upon the serene landscape of Uruvea village (modern Bodh Gaya) he knew his quest had ended. Also visit the Lumbini Gardens, the birthplace of Prince Siddhrath. Kapilavastu is where the young prince spent his childhood and Sarnath is where he first took to preaching after attaining Enlightenment. End your experience with Nalanda, the famed ancient university, which is the bedrock of all Buddhist learning. The tour also navigates through Sravasti, Lucknow, Varanasi and Kushinagar, places which are associated with the life of the Buddha. Each city is teeming with possibilities for the discerning travellers seeking something beyond the routine tourist attractions.
