Lumbini holds special importance in development of tourism: Oli

CPN-UML Chairperson KP Sharma Oli has said that Lumbini holds a special importance in the development of tourism as well as in enhancing Nepal’s reputation abroad.

In a message of best wishes on the occasion of the 2567th Buddha Jayanti today, Oli said that we should materialize the concept of establishing Lumbini as the World City of Peace.

Stating that Lumbini is not only the birthplace of Lord Buddha but also the cradle of Buddhist philosophy, Oli, also a former Prime Minister, was of the view that it was necessary for the world to pay attention to this fact.

The septuagenarian leader, in his message, expressed high regards towards Lord Buddha, the pioneer of world peace, human welfare and non-violence.

The former Prime Minister shared that it was proven that three Samyak Buddhas were born within 30 kilometers radius of Lumbini in Kapilvastu district and there was, he added, no coincidence as such elsewhere in the world that one could travel to three birthplaces of Samyak Buddhas within an hour.

He reminisced that Lumbini was internationally connected to airways during his leadership. He also shared that he had given greater importance to the development of Lumbini as a center of attraction for Buddhist pilgrims as well as tourists through construction of attractive physical infrastructures.
