Image of the Maya Devi Temple and Holy Pond in Lumbini, the birthplace of the Buddha.

The area of the temple covers the exact spot where Siddhartha Gautama was born, which is indicated by the marker stone. The Holy Pond is where, according to the legend, both the Buddha and his mother were washed by divinities.
