  • Description

    Today's small town of Kushinagar was once the Kingdom of the Malla dynasty in the days of Gautam Buddha. It was known as Kushinara then and is one of the most important spots on the Buddhist pilgrimage trail. It was here at the age of 80 in the 5th century B.C. that Lord Buddha breathed his last. This town lost into obscurity and came into fore light only after some excavations made by the lord Alexander Cunning revealed its importance in the late 19th century. <br />The town since then rose to prominence. The Ramabhar Stupa which finds a mention in old Buddhist texts as the Mukut Bandhan Vihar is the place where Lord Buddha was believed to be cremated. The Nirvana Stupa exposed in 1876, had a copper vessel which bore an inscription in Brahmi stating that remains of the lord had been deposited here. The nirvana temple has a huge six meter long Chunar sandstone image of reclining Buddha. This position of Buddha shows his position before passing on to Mahaparinirvana. The statue made in the 5th century A.D. was brought to Kushinagar from Mathura and was excavated in 1876. The Mathakuar shrine houses another 10th century statue of Buddha. This is also the place where Lord Buddha preached his last sermon.

Sonepur Mela starts in November and lasts for next 15 days to one month every year. It draws more than 600,000 visitors to the Sonepur. One of the major attractions of the fair is the sight of scores of elephants that are beautifully decorated and lined up for sale. This is the only place in India or probably in the world where largest number of elephants are traded at one place. The buyers are mainly government forest department officials. You may even find the trading of large number of horses, goats, buffaloes, donkeys, ponies and dogs etc. along with elephants and other household cattle. In his very first sermon Lord Buddha put forth the Middle Way, the Four Noble Truths, and the Eightfold Path - the message spread rapidly, penetrating caste and class barriers; today Buddhism is a way of life in large parts of the world, its message of peace and tolerance speaks to us all. Buddha preached that the way to salvation is not dependent on God but on understanding the way things really are for all living beings subject to desire. We take you on a journey to places associated with important events in Buddha's life. Prince Siddhartha was born at Lumbini, became Buddha, the Enlightened One, at Bodhgaya, gave his first sermon at Sarnath, lived the greater part of his monastic life in Sravasti, and attained Nirvana at Kushinagar.
