PDF File Size: 36 KB | Download   
An international team of archaeologists has now begun a three-year survey of the archeological vestiges in Lumbini, the birthplace of Lord Buddha in Nepal, a world-renowned Buddhist pilgrimage destination, and a UNESCO World Heritage
site since 1997.The team of archaeologists, including experts from Nepal’s Department of Archaeology and the Lumbini Development Trust, is directed by Robin Coningham, Pro-Vice-Chancellor and Professor of Archaeology at Durham
University, UK. The archaeologists will work to identify the presence, or absence, of archaeological deposits, invisible below the surface, so that appropriate placing of pilgrim facilities can be made without damaging valuable archaeological resources. There is also a pressing need to prepare a plan for the area immediately outside the level of the Sacred Garden to ensure that other developments within the Master Plan for the management of Lumbini are implemented in a way compatible to the World Heritage site.
