Buddhist Pilgrimage

Buddhism is a faith that was founded by Siddhartha Gautama (“the Buddha”) more than 2,500 years ago in India. With about 470 million followers, scholars consider Buddhism one of the major world religions. The Buddha was born in Lumbini (now in Nepal) and died around the age of 80 in Kushinagara (India). Buddhism spread throughout South Asia in the five centuries following the Buddha’s passing, and thence into Central, Southeast and East Asia and Eastern Europe over the next two millennia. The land of Pakistan has been a strong cradle of Buddhism with a great population, pilgrims, learners and other devotees came to Taxila and Swat. Our eight days exciting trip which has been designed to explore the awe-inspiring Buddhist remains in Pakistan, once home to the incredible faith and centre of learning for monks.
