As Gorakhpur’s history is closely knitted with spirituality, thus a visit to Kushinagar and Kapilavastu is a must. These two places are considered to be significant sites in Buddhism. Kushinagar is a place where Buddhists believe that Lord Buddha attained nirvana after death. There are several sites in and around Kushinagar such as Ramabhar Stupa, Nirvana Stupa, Wat Thai temple, Tibbati Temple, Mahaparinirvana temple, Mathakur Shrine along with several others. If you are visiting Kushinagar, then you should also take a trip to Kapilavastu which is another significant Buddhist pilgrimage. This place holds great importance as Lord Buddha spent his initial 29 years of life here and started his journey towards humanity resulting into the birth of Buddhism – one of the greatest religions of the world.
