Lumbini is the place where the founder of Buddhism and apostle of peace and enlightenment, Lord Buddha was born in 623 B.C.E. It is said that in the Parinibbana sutra, the Buddha had Himself declared the four places of future pilgrimage - His birthplace Lumbini along with the place of His enlightenment (Bodh Gaya), His first discourse (Sarnath) and His death (Kushinagar). Therefore, Lumbini, a small place in the South-Western Terai of Nepal, is the epicentre of holy sentiment for the Buddhists.
