Maya Devi Temple
Maya Devi Temple is the oldest scared temple of Lumbini depicting the birth scene of Lord Buddha. It contains a stone relief architecture style. The bas-relief exhibits Maya Devi holding herself by griping on to a branch of a sal tree, and the newborn infant Buddha standing vertical on a lotus plinth. Two celestial outlines are appointed in the act of pouring water and lotuses from the heaven, designated in the statue by a description of clouds.
An image of Maya Devi, holding the infant Buddha is established inside this temple. It is figured out by many scholars that the temple of Maya Devi was built over the basis of more than ancient temples or several stupas. There is the most popular sacred bathing pool, known as Puskarni on the south of this temple. It is believed that Maya Devi took a bath into it before giving birth to her baby.
Now-a-days, a large number of beautiful shrines have been constructed by many devotes. Visiting to the birthplace of Buddha, Lumbini is a great experience only for spiritual feelings but also get comfort and peace of mind. It is believed where the infant Buddha was projecting terraces in sliding order is riveted with fine brick masonry. Since the christen era the Maya Devi temple has been worshipped by both Hindus and Buddhists and is deemed to have been built over the foundation of at least one earlier temple.
