Lumbini, Nepal: 6 reviews and 9 photos
Taking a bus from Lumbini,around 20 minutes you will arrive a village named "Tilaurakot"
After get off the bus you have to hire rikshaw to go further (costs 100-200 Rp.) he will bring you true the charming village,quite busy in a way but after you pass the busy area you will see yellow field full of mastard.Then you will reach the area that was once a palace where Buddha lived when he was a prince.
And eastern gateway where Buddha left his royal life to seek the truth of world outside palace.They also found some ancient terrakotta,human,animal figures,coins,beads around there.
Here you might see some guy walks toward you and begins to introduce this and that,trying to lead you here and there.And ofcourse afterall he asked for money as a 'guide fee' or 'donation' (he didn't help much anyway just to walk in front of us)
Address: Tilaurakot Village
