On the occasion of the publication of " LUMBINI, the birthplace of Buddha" ( UNESCO & The Oriental Cultural Protection Alliance - ISBN 978-92-3-100003-4 ) I've decided to publish some of my yet unpublished photographs of Lumbini together with some of those which feature in the book.
The purpose of the book is to interpret the uniqueness of the world heritage property of Lumbini with its natural beauty and Buddhist temples and monasteries built by Buddhist countries & communities worldwide. As birthplace of the Lord Buddha, Lumbini is an important destination for Buddhist pilgrims. It is also a place of peace, harmony & understanding for all peoples. I'd like to thank both UNESCO & The Oriental Cultural Protection Alliance for their sponsorship & support and of course the people of Lumbini, for graciously allowing me to photograph their everyday life.
