Kushinagar district is a district of Uttar Pradesh state in Northern India. One of the four main pilgrimage sites marking Buddha’s life – the others being Lumbini (Nepal), Bodhgaya and Sarnath – Kushinagar is where Buddha died. The place is well known for its cultural heritage all over the world. At Kushinagar, Lord Buddha-Founder of Buddhism attained Parinirvana and delivered his last sermon.
There are several peaceful, modern Thai temples where you can stay, chat with monks or simply contemplate your place in the world, and there are three main historical sites, including the simple but wonderfully serene stupa – The Ramabhar Stupa, where Buddha is said to have been cremated. Outside India, it is an International Buddhist Pilgrimage centre. The followers of Buddhism, especially from Asian countries, wish to visit this place at least once in a lifetime.
