Maratika Cave
The sacred pilgrimage site of Maratika Cave is a very important destination for Vajrayana Buddhists wishing to engage in long life practices.
It is here that Guru Rinpoche, Padmasambhava and Dakini Mandarava opened the Mandala of Amitayus and practised for 90 days, attaining the level of "vidyadhara of immortality".
In the Vajrayana tradition of Buddhism, Maratika is considered to be one of the six most holy places of our world.

Lumbini
The place where Lord Buddha was born and signifies the emergence of Buddhism.
