Conservation of Archaeological Remains in Lumbini Begins with Support From UNESCO and The Government of Japan
PDF File Size: 20 KB | Download   
An international team of experts is currently in Lumbini to prepare for the
conservation of archaeological remains at the birthplace of Lord Buddha, a world-renowned Buddhist pilgrimage destination and a UNESCO World Heritage site
since 1997. The team, led by Italian conservator Costantino Meucci, will prepare a conservation campaign for the Marker Stone, the Nativity Sculpture and the Ashoka Pillar, which is scheduled to start later this year. They will also use specialist equipment to gauge the impact of the micro-climate on the archaeological remains inside the Maya Devi Temple. The conservation team is composed of international and national experts, including specialists from the Department of Archaeology and the Lumbini Development Trust. The conservation is part of a larger project titled “Strengthening the Conservation and Management of Lumbini, the Birthplace of Lord Buddha”, which was launched in 2010 to address a number of issues and challenges facing the World Heritage Site. These range from the deteriorating condition of the ruins contained within the Maya Devi Temple to the inadequately understood and mapped archaeological remains, both within the site and in the adjacent buffer zone, such as the village mound.
