Lumbini the Birth Place of Lord Buddha in Nepal- Completing the Kenzo Tange Master Plan
PDF File Size: 4.4 MB | Download   
Lord Buddha was born as Prince Siddhartha Gautama of the Shakya Kingdom in the gardens of Lumbini in 623 BC. His journey in this world began in the gardens of Lumbini when his mother Queen Mayadevi was travelling from Tilaurakot,the capital of the Shakya Kingdom, to her family home in Devdaha to give birth. It was here that the newborn infant took his first seven steps toward the East beginning a path to enlightenment which would change humankind. Later in his life,Lord Buddha advised his followers to visit four sacred places relevant to his life, one of which is his birthplace.
The Kenzo Tange Master Plan was designed to turn Lumbini into a major center of pilgrimage and tourism. It lays a solid foundation to protect the spiritual, archaeological and cultural assets of Lord Buddha’s birthplace.Great efforts have been undertaken to implement the Master Plan in the past. It is now essential to fully implement it to preserve the Outstanding Universal Value of Lumbini and safeguard it from factors that threaten its existence. Considerable financial support is required to complete the Kenzo Tange Master Plan, and to ensure that the historical accounts - along with the monuments and vestiges that are associated with Lord Buddha’s life - are fully preserved and protected.
Support is also required for a variety of additional projects that have been proposed in this brochure, including redesigning the Mayadevi Temple, undertaking archaeological investigations in the Greater Lumbini Area, establishing an International Documentation Centre, and preserving the Ramagrama site.
These small projects are all geared toward conserving and safeguarding Lumbini and other Buddhist sites within its vicinity. Firm commitment and assistance from both national and international stakeholders are needed to preserve and develop the sacred sites in and around Lumbini for current and future generations.
