Lumbini is the place where the Buddha, known as the Tathagata was born. It is the place which should be visited and seen by a person of devotion and which should cause awareness and apprehension of the nature of impermanence. The birthplace of the Gautama Buddha, Lumbini, is the Mecca of every Buddhist, being one of the four holy places of Buddhism. It is said in the Parinibbana Sutta that Buddha himself identified four places of future pilgrimage: the sites of his birth, enlightenment, first discourse, and death. All of these events happened outside in nature under trees.
Lumbini and its surrounding areas have been sites of pilgrimage for centuries. The archaeological remains in the Greater Lumbini Area, some of which were excavated in the last century, not only reveal the exact location where Lord Buddha was born but also provide testimony of pilgrimages dating back to the 3rd century BC.
