Lumbini the birthplace of Lord Buddha is the world’s most important Buddhist pilgrimage center. Lumbini lies about 250 km from Kathmandu, in the southern plains of Nepal.
Recent archaeological surveys have led to the discovery of Mayadevi Pond (where Mayadevi bathed before giving birth to Buddha), Nativity Stone (the exact spot where Buddha was born), Ashoka Pillar (erected by the Ashoka emperor as a tribute to Budhha’s birthplace) and numerous palatial remains of what was once a vibrant kingdom of the Shakyas. Lumbini is being preserved amidst a setting of rich natural biodiversity and pristine wildlife. Cranes and spotted deer are some of the unique flagship species of Lumbini.
Because of historical, cultural, natural and archaeological significance, Lumbini has been inducted into World Heritage Site list by UNESCO.
Today Lumbini has become an international spiritual center for both Buddhist pilgrims and tourists of varied faiths. Lumbini Master Plan, which is currently being implemented, envisages the construction of the entire Lumbini area into an international center of peace, meditation, research and natural sanctuary center. International monasteries have been built by various countries including India, China, Thailand, Burma, Germany etc.
