Lumbini, the peaceful city located in Rupandehi district in Nepal, is the birthplace of Lord Gautama Buddha, founder of Buddhism. This city is the most important pilgrimage destination for all schools of Buddhism all around the world. The Boudha was enlightened where he was born as Prince Siddhartha Gautam in 563 B.C., as the son of Suddhodhan King of Kapilvastu and Queen Maya Devi. According to the Buddhist literary sources, on the day of Baisakh Purnima, Maya Devi while on her way to her maternal home, took a bath in Puskarini (a pond in the garden of the palace) and immediately felt the onset of her labor pain. She grabbed the branch of big shady tree nearby as supporting and gave birth to a beautiful baby prince. The new born prince took seven steps in the holy soil; under each step a lotus flower bloomed immediately. Lumbini garden, where Maya Devi gave birth to Gautam Buddha, remained neglected for a long time, but now it has been beautifully maintained, and the region is now listed on the UNESCO World Heritage Site.

One of the earliest pilgrims to the region was Emperor Asoka. He came to the holy site in 249 B.C., and erected a stone pillar as an evidence of his visit to the region. The pillar has an inscription, clearly indicating the Lord Gautama Buddha was born in Lumbini, and it was an evidence that the Buddha belongs to the Nepali soil. The ancient pillar was discovered much later in the 19th century, and that helped the archaeologists to uncover many other historic ruins the area. Also the inscription top of the Asoka Pillar “Om Mani Padme Hum” is a proof that King Ripu Malla visited the site in 1312 A.D.
