Buddha was born in Lumbini on a full Moon day in 623 B.C. Lumbini lies in southern Nepal. The importance of lumbini had risen by the Mauryan emperor Ashoka, who visited Lumbini in order to pay homage to the great master and erected a pillar in 249 B.C to indicate the birthplace of Buddha.  Near the Ashoka pillar is the newly renovated Maya Devi temple, which house the nativity sculpture depicting the birth scene of the Buddha. The temple also comprised the marker stone discovered in 1996 A.D, which depicts the exact spot where the Buddha was born. He stands now in bulletproof glass in the Maya Devi temple.
