In his quest for the true meaning of life, Gautam Buddha sowed the first seeds of Buddhism in India. The Buddhist Circuit tours are the holy sites of Buddhism where Buddha was born, attained Enlightenment, preached his first Sermon and attained Nirvana. Bihar, the tiny state tucked away in the eastern part of India derived its name from the word vihara meaning monastery and is richly endowed with Buddhist sites. Lumbini, Bodhgaya, Rajgir, Nalanda, Sarnath and Kushinagar, Nalanda, Vaishalim & Sravasti are the primary Buddhist sites. These sties enrich travelers with deeper understanding of Buddhism and the path that Buddha followed.
Buddhist circuit tours can be clubbed with other equally rewarding Buddhist destinations like Varanasi, Ajanta, Ellora and non Buddhist sites to add a little variety to your tour.
