Why take this tour?

Overview
The Buddha, also known as the "Awakened One" in Sanskrit, was a teacher who lived in northern India between the mid-sixth and mid-fourth centuries BCE. Buddhism is a religion and philosophy that sprang from his teachings (Before the common Era). Buddhism has played a significant part in the spiritual, cultural, and social life of Asia since it first emerged in India and extended from there to central and southern Asia, China, Korea, and Japan during the 20th century. Ancient Indian literary languages that were closely related to one another gave rise to ancient scripture and doctrine. They're referred to as Buddhists
