1 post in this topic

KATHMANDU: New excavations within the Maya Devi Temple of Buddha’s birthplace in Lumbini, Nepal, have revealed evidence of a series of shrines extending the history of the site to a much earlier date than previously known, according to UNESCO.

“For the first time in South Asia, excavations have revealed a pre-Ashokan temple of brick, which itself was built over an earlier one of timber,” said Professor Robin Coningham of Durham University in UK, who co-directed a team of Nepali and international experts together with Kosh Prasad Acharya, at a press conference here in the Capital on Sunday.

The Maya Devi Temple houses the Marker Stone and the Nativity Sculpture, installed in ancient times to denote that Lord Buddha was born in the place.
