Description: Lumbini, where Buddha was born, has been identified with the site of Rummindei in Nepalese Terai. Faith in the compassion of the Buddha brought into being the cult of Buddha worship which began with the veneration of the places that had been hallowed by him. His relics were also held sacred and venerated, and finally the Buddha image itself came to be worshipped.
