07 Nights / 08 Days

Delhi, Bodhgaya, Nalanda/Rajgir, Varanasi/Sarnath, Kushinagar, Lumbini, Sravasti, Agra/Delhi

In the Mahaparinirvana sutra, the Buddha tells his followers that they can attain merit and a noble rebirth by going on pilgrimage to the places where he was born (Lumbini), gained enlightenment (Bodhgaya), first taught (Sarnath), and attained Nirvana (Kushinagar).

India, the country where Buddhisim originated, still has rich reminiscence 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 Budha), Chaityas (prayer halls) and Viharas (cells for the monks).

Come, discover the path to enlightenment with the Buddhist Circuit Special Train.
