PDF File Size: 4.24 MB | Download   
The inscription of Lumbini in the World Heritage List in the year 1997 was based on criteria (iii) and (vi), which refer respectively to:
(Criterion iii) As the birthplace of the Lord Buddha, testified by the inscription on the Ashoka pillar, the sacred area in Lumbini is one of the most holy and significant places for one of the world’s great religions.
(Criterion vi) The archaeological remains of the Buddhist viharas (monasteries) and stupas (memorial shrines) from the 3rd century BC to the 15th century AD, provide important evidence about the nature of Buddhist pilgrimage centres from a very early period.
Taking into account the universal value of the religious and archaeological significance of the monuments contained within the Sacred Garden Area, as defined by the Kenzo Tange Master Plan (Tange and Urtec, 1978), and in particular the Ashoka Pillar, the Nativity Sculpture and the Marker Stone. However, since the Outstanding Universal Value (OUV) of the monument also depends on the conservation of the archaeological remains, which is affected by the high frequency of touristic visit and pilgrimage, the incorrect use of the monuments may negatively influence the OUV.
