Maya Devi Mandir is located at Lumbini in Nepal. This is the place where it is said that Lord Buddha was born and raised. This is a secreted place for Buddhist. Hindus and Buddhist visit this place and worship Buddha

This temple is the main temple of Lumbini that marks the exact birthplace of Gautam Buddha. There are the ruins that dates back to 6th century BC around this temple.

One of the main temple in Lumbini and the old sculpture and archaeological things were brilliant. Great place to meditate and relax.

It is a unique place to see the real tradition and its art of making. Such a nice management also by the ruling priest and it would be wonderful to visit once while you are in the city.
