The monastic site at Lumbini is teeming with beautiful monasteries from various Buddhist countries. Serene ambience.

You can tour all the temples and monasteries on foot or on a boat. This is a small boat ride. The water is clean. Tourists from all over the place could be seen humbled at the nativity site.

It was said to be the Buddha’s birthplace. Many temples from different counties with its own take in Buddhist praying halls. Quite interesting to see the different culture influences in the same place

You can visit Buddhist temples from around the world. You can admire the architectural designs of each country’s temple.
Most temples will deny entry if you don’t wear garments that cover your shoulders and knees.
Best to rent a bicycle or motorbike to tour the area yourself. Watch out for terribly paved streets and cow feces.

It's a colossal masterplan, very poorly done. Huge parts of the garden (I'd say 80% of it) is poorly maintained or not built yet at all. Huge heaps of rubbish and trash everywhere. Quite big disappointment.

What could be a place of harmony and peaceful reflection is one of filth, loud music, and what seemed to be a good idea at the time but never got finished. Lack of security, expanse, and isolation makes this a predator's haven. Please be careful girls wandering around the area, especially in the late afternoon. A bunch of male Tuk-tuk drivers seems to congregate mocking the foreign women. It's only a matter of time before someone is attacked. It is badly signposted so unless you are on a tuk-tuk tour good luck with finding the temples. The Cambodian, Myanmar and Thai temples are along a dusty, dirty, unsealed road. You will pass signs that say "please be silent" "please don't play loud music over speakers in the picnic area", "please don't litter." Totally pointless because any semblance of quiet or peaceful enjoyment of the temples is shattered by people yelling into their phones or at each other. Buddha's birthplace backs onto the picnic area where people do what the sign tells them not to do...play loud music over speakers. The waterways are polluted with rubbish that people were too lazy to put in the bin. Signs on the bins advising people to keep "Lumbini clean" are only written in English...so apparently the English are the ones throwing crap on the ground & into the water. I found it very difficult to find any level of spirituality in this place. If the Taj Mahal was treated with such disrespect there would be worldwide condemnation.

This is a group of different beautiful temples of Gautam Buddha, constructed by the respective countries in their own architectural styles. As these are located in a rectangular path around Mayadevi temple, these can be visited easily within 3-4 hours time.

Most of the buildings here are less than 15 years old and are molded concrete, not carved stone or wood. Lots of beggars and donation boxes. Cotton candy and ice cream. It's like a fake religious Gatlinburg. Would never go again.
