It is a place where the newly-born Buddha took his first seven steps and delivered a message of peace & humanity. The temple is right next to the Pushkarini sacred pool and a sacred garden.
Maya Devi took a break in the shade of a Bodhi tree while traveling. She went into labor there and took a ritual dip in the nearby pond. It was also here that Lord Buddha took his first bath. The temple is a white structure that contains a marker stone that marks the exact location of Buddha's birth. This site's archaeological remains date back to the time of Ashoka, around the third century BC.
The 6 m tall Ashoka pillar is another noteworthy landmark in Lumbini. It is a 3rd Century stone pillar constructed during the reign of Emperor Ashoka. Ashoka built the pillar as a mark of respect after visiting Lord Buddha's birthplace and accepting Buddhism. The pillar has become a significant tourist attraction in the country. The pillar is housed within the serene Maya Devi temple. There is a small fence surrounding the pillar, which is decorated with colorful prayer flags.
