birth place of Lord Buddha.

Welcome to Lumbini, Nepal and discover its historical beauty.

This is the birth place of Loard Buddha

Lumbinī is a Buddhist pilgrimage site in the Rupandehi district of Nepal, 300 kilometers from Kathmandu and 190 kilometers south of Pokhara.  It is the place where Queen Mayadevi have given birth to Siddhartha Gautama, who as the Buddha Gautama founded the Buddhist tradition. Lumbini is one of four magnets for pilgrimage that sprang up in places pivotal to the life of the Buddha.

Lumbini has a number of temples, including the Mayadevi temple, and others under construction. Also here is the Puskarini or Holy Pond - where the Buddha's mother took the ritual dip prior to his birth and where he, too, had his first bath - as well as the remains of Kapilvastu palace. This is also known as the pilgrimage destination of the world's millions of Buddhists as well as other researchers and visitors. This is one of the World Heritage site listed by UNESCO.

Lord Buddha, the symbol of peace and the light of Asia was born here in Lumbini in 623 B.C. The main attraction of Lumbini, the Sacred garden is spread over 2.56 sp. km., which possesses all the treasures of the historic area. The Ashokan Pillar, carring an inscription identifying the holy site as the birthplace, is suited in the Secred Garden. Next to the Ashoka Pilleris the Mayadevi Temple, which house a base relief depicting the Nativity Sculpture. In 1996 excavations have discovered a peace of a stone that indicates the exact spot of Loard Buddha. Puskarni - Sacred Pool, where queen Mayadevi, the Lord Buddha's mother took a holy bath bifore the birth, lies to the south of the pillar. As a global initiative promote Lumbini as a center for world peace, many countries have constructed temples, monasteries and stupas in the International Monastic Zone.

Note: To visit one monastery to another monastery, Stupa  and Temple it takes time. Toilet problem is real problem for visitor in Lumbini Park. Chinese build temple have toilet facilities for visitors and near Mayadevi Temple drinking water and toilet are available. Most of the temple and monasteries staff are unfriendly and don't give you sufficient information. If you are taking your own Car / Jeep / Van inside Lumbini Park go to north side gate (where bus / car parking located) buy Rs 300 ticket and drive west and go inside from gate no 8. If you get confused you can ask with some police. I found Police in Lumbini are very helpful.
