The famous Buddhist pilgrimage site, Lumbini is located in the Rupandehi district of Province No. 5 in Nepal. It is a holy place where Lord Buddha was born. Lumbini is renowned all over the world as the birth place of Gautam Buddha, the light of Asia. Following Buddhist tradition, Lumbini is the place where Queen Mahamaya Devi gave birth to Siddhartha Gautam in 563 BC. Siddhartha Gautam achieved enlightenment, became Buddha and founded Buddhism. Lumbini is one of the world's most important spiritual sites which attracts Buddhist pilgrims from around the world. Today, we can visit over 25 Buddhist monasteries built by diverse countries from Vietnam to France. People come to Lumbini to study Buddhism, meditate and visit the birthplace within the sacred Mayadevi Gardens.
Mayadevi Temple is the most sacred site in the Lumbini Garden where archaeologists have identified the exact spot where Queen Maya Devi gave birth to her son, later known as Lord Buddha. Inscriptions on the Ashoka Pillar nearby also indicate the spot as his birthplace. It is believed that the newly born Prince Siddhartha (later became the Buddha) took his first seven steps and delivered his peace message to humanity.
