Lumbini is situated in the town of Kapilavastu in southern Nepal close to the Indian border. Lumbini, which in Sanskrit means “the lovely”, is a famous Buddhist pilgrimage site and in 1997 was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Lumbini is the birthplace of Gautama Buddha, who founded “Buddhism” around the 4th to 6th century BC. Lumbini is one of four Buddhist pilgrimage sites based on major events in the life of Gautama Buddha. Lumbini is the place where Lord Buddha – the apostle of peace and the Light of Asia – was born in 623 B.C.Recent excavations have turned up a stone bearing a “foot imprint”, indicating the exact place of Lord buddha’s birth and it is where the Maya Devi Temple stands today. The Puskarni pond, where Queen Mayadevi, had taken a bath before giving birth to him lies to the south of the Ashoka pillar. Along with it, the other attractions are the Bodhi tree, pillar edict of Ashoka, DrigungKagyud Lotus Stupa, Lumbini Garden, Eternal Peace Flame, Chinese Maitreya Temple and Burmese LokamaniCula Pagoda. This place gives a distinct enjoyment with the available resources and is delightfully overwhelming and peace place to visit.
