05/18/2019

Nawalparasi, May 18: The government of State-5 is beginning the Lumbini Visit Year 2076 campaign today marking the 2563rd Buddha Jayanti. However, many sites related to Buddha is west Nawalparasi remain neglected. Ramgram, Sunawal, Bardaghat municipality and Sarawal rural municipality are home to many important sites and artifacts related to the life of Gautam Buddha. However, no major events are planned here for today. Relics of Gautam Buddha in the Ramgram Stupa in Ujaini in ward no. 7 of Ramgram municipality, Panditpur, known as the maternal home of Buddha in Banjariya of ward no. 18 of the same municipality, a Buddha-era pond in Targauli of ward no. 7 of Sunawal municipality and a tree believed to be since the Buddha time in Jawa of Sarawal rural municipality-2 are the significant sites that are not seeing any extravagant or high-profile events today. The State government should have given special importance to both Ramgram and Panditpur and organised official events, says Chair of the Ramgram Sutap Preservation Committee Shambhu Upadhyaya. Such events would have helped not only conserve these archaeological and historical sites but also promote them as a destination for both domestic and foreign tourists. RSS
