The Light of Asia LUMBINI :

Buddha- jayanti falls in the Nepalese month Baisakh (April-May). Buddha-Jayanti, Which literally means the birthday of Lord Buddha, is on Purnima or full moon day. The unique thing is that Lord Buddha was born on full moon day, got enlightened on that day and died also one the same day. On this occasion thousands of pilgrims from the World come to Lumbini to pay homage. At the age of 31 he ran away from his palace in search of the peace and liberation from human sufferings.

The description of famous ancient pilgrims Huian Tsang and Faeihan indicate the Lumbini is indeed the birth place of Siddhartha Gautam who later became Shakyamuni Buddha. Lumbini is the symbolic place of the profounder of Buddhism, the apostle of peace, compassion and non violence. This place is a renowned holy place for the millions of Buddhists as the JERUSALEM is to Christians and Mecca is to Muslims. The biggest attraction at Lumbini is the sacred garden with Mayadevi Temple,the sacred pool, the Ashoka Pillars and pinpointing the birth place of Buddha.
