Come, discover the path to enlightenment, towards Buddha by train.
Let’s understand significance of these places in Lord Buddha’s life
India, the country where Buddhism originated has rich memories of the Buddhist legacy. As part of its drive towards austerity, the only kind of art and architecture that it supported were Stupas (stone cased moulds that commemorated relics of Buddha), Chaityas (prayer halls) and Viharas (cells for the monks). Buddhist Train India will help you visit all these places up close for a truly religious experience.
Buddha was born in Lumbini, gained enlightenment in Bodhgaya, first taught Sarnath and attained Nirvana in Kushinagar
