If you are in Nepal, this place is a "must" come. Very attractive also crowded. You need to leave your shoes outside (there is a place to keep) then go in. This place is Birthplace of Lord Buddha.

This being the birth place of Buddha (exact place is marked inside the Temple) is auspicious for Buddhists. However everyone in my opinion should visit this place associated with one of the greatest preacher. Visit is recommended with proper attire. Don't miss the tank where...More
