Various Buddhist tourist places in India include Bodhgaya, Lumbini, Patna, Kushinagar, Sarnath, Varanasi, Rajgir, Nalanda, Lucknow, Saraswati and Vaishali. These are the places which have been of utmost importance since the ancient times as they shed a lot of light on the birth and spread of Buddhism. These tours can be taken up by anyone- a pious Buddhist who is in search for his belief’s roots or by anyone who wishes to understand Buddhism better. If required one can even take up individual tours like only Bodhgaya tour or Lumbini tour and try and in turn understand an aspect associated with Buddhism better by simply visiting with these places. These Buddhist tours can be taken up by either any family or by any group of friends. Many families combined together can also use the facility of going on a group tour together with everyone. Thus, with such tours not only does one have fun but in the long run one also gets to learn about Buddhism.
