Lumbini Crane Sanctuary, Lumbini Overview

Lumbini Garden in Nepal, the birthplace of Siddhartha Gautama (the Buddha) and an important Buddhist Pilgrimage site is now a sanctuary for cranes. This sanctuary is spread over the area of 6 square kilometres and consists of the ruins of the palace of Tilaurakot where Siddhartha Gautam spent 29 years of his life. It is one of the most unique attractions in Nepal and is definitely worth a visit. 

This crane sanctuary aims at protecting the endangered Sarus Cranes in and around the wetlands of this area by creating a local community for their protection and to restore their natural habitat while creating an education facility around this conversation. It is believed that Gautam Buddha fought for the preservation of this bird, around 2500 years ago, and the Lumbini Crane Sanctuary wishes to continue his noble mission.Along with the Sarus Cranes, one may get a chance to see the antelope-like blue bull. Hence, for those who are interested in Buddhism or wildlife conservation, must visit this attraction.
