Lonely Planet review for Maya Devi Temple
The Maya Devi Temple sits on the exact site of the birth of the Buddha, according to Buddhist scholars. It’s reputed that it was here where the heavily pregnant Maya Devi came upon a pond of extraordinary beauty amid the thick jungle, and gave birth to Siddhartha Gautama under the auspicious Bodhi tree.
