Brick stupa at Piprahwa, discovered by William Claxton Peppe in the late 19th century CE. The stupa and other artifacts on site strongly suggested that Piprahwa was ancient Kapilavastu. However, the other possiblity, Tilaurakot was not dismissed as the site of Kapilavastu but, owing to the finds at Piprahwa, was not confirmed either.
