Sacred Pond & Ashokan Pillar
This Sacred Pond is where Mayadevi is said to have bathed before Siddhartha's birth. It is between the Bodhi (Pipal) tree and the Mayadevi Temple. Ashokan Pillar is an estimated 50-60 ton heavy, excellent carved cylinder-shaped rock installed by Emperor Ashok in 249 BC. This pillar has written evidence of Prince Gautama's birthplace engraved in the Pali language. This pillar has a little crack, damaged by a thunderbolt in the 7th century. King Ripu Mall also visited in 1312 to leave proof of the carved mantra, Om Mani Padme Hum of the Pillar.
Maya Devi Temple
Entry of Gate Number 5 to Maya Devi Temple is near the Sacred Pond and Ashokan Pillar. The marker stone in a bulletproof glass represented the exact birthplace of Prince Siddhartha. Once, a large Bodhi tree damaged the temple renovated by Chinese pilgrims while they visited the 4th to 7th centuries. Annually, Hindus and Buddhists celebrate the birth anniversary of Buddha on the full moon day of Baisakh at this temple. This nativity sculpture is the presentation of delivery time to Prince Siddhartha.
