LUMBINI (The Birthplace of Lord Buddha)

Situated on the foothills of the Churiya range of Nepal in the district of Rupandehi, the birthplace of Siddhartha Gautam, the shakya prince and the ultimate Buddha, the enlightened one, is the pilgrimage destination of the world’s millions of Buddhists. It is the pilgrimage site for all who cherish peace and harmony.  UNESCO listed the nativity site and the Ashoka’s pillar as the world heritage site in December 1997. The great emperor of India Ashoka had visited holy Lumbini and promised not to involve in wars again. As an evidence, he erected Ashoka pillar describing his visit to pay homage and his magnanimity in reducing taxes. Mayadevi temple, sacred garden and the sacred pond (where queen Mayadevi had taken bath just before giving birth to the Buddha) are the major attractions of Lumbini. It is approximately 280 Km away from Kathmandu. Lumbini Development Trust (LDT) is the responsible authority for its development and preservation.


The holy site of Lumbini is bordered by a large monastic zone, in which only monasteries can be built, no shops or hotel or restaurants. It is separated into an eastern and western monastic zone; the eastern having the Theravada monasteries and the western having Mahayana and Vajrayana monasteries. Silently flickering Peepal tree and prayer flags, birds chirping and reflection of gently burning oil lamps on the pond creates peaceful environment. Early morning to late evening pilgrim from various country perform chanting and meditation. The twilight moment is very much peaceful, enchanting and touchy.

In 1896, Nepalese archaeologist team led by Khadga Samsher Rana discovered a great stone pillar at the site attributed to Emperor Ashoka. Records made by the Chinese pilgrim Fa- Xian were also used in the process of identifying this religiously acclaimed site. Despite of crystal clear evidence, construction of duplicate Lumbini in India side has become a shameful act for India government.
