The Lord Buddha was born in 623 B.C. in the famous garden Lumbini which soon became a pilgrimage of the world. It's no great surprise to learn that the world heritage listed Lumbini, a huge religious significance and attracts Buddhist pilgrims from around the world. This divine place is bordered by a large cloistered zone in which only monasteries can be built, no shops, no hotels or restaurants. The religious heart of Lumbini is Maya Devi Temple, which symbols the spot where Queen Maya Devi gave birth to Siddhartha Gautam. A sacred garden is connected to the pillar of Asoka, the historic ruins of stupas, monks with maroon and saffron robe sitting under the Bodhi (pipal). The modern temple made up of a simple white building that protects the ancient ruins. On the south side of the temple is a sacred pool where it has been said that newly born Buddha’s was bathed. And in front of the pool, eternal peace Flame has illuminating since 1986. All around the Lumbini, colourful prayer flags are strung between the trees. Those flags carry prayers and mantras heavenward as they flap onto the breeze. As an initiative of Buddhism, people come from all around the world to visit this godly place to be blessed with inner peace.
