Place to Meditate

It is a bit out of the way from from main road and town, but then this is where Skayamuni's relics were buried. This is the only place that has not been excavated. Serene place for meditation. The Stupa hill is surrounded by clean and quiet surroundings and smiling care takers!

I think I am the first actual tourist to rate this site. It was serene and more peaceful than I imagined. There is not a lot of development around the stupa so if you plan to light incense or leave an offering take it with you. The stupa itself is a grassy hill and not much to look at until you remember that the ashes of one of the greatest human are mere feet from you. You don't need to be a Buddhist to appreciate that. I would recommend this as part of seeing the great religious sites of the world. Same as the Vatican.

This stupa is the only real relic stupa left. One of the most important place for the Buddhist religion people. This is the only place that have the real relic of lord Buddha.

Important pilgrimage site

From my Guest house, I organised a full day taxi hire to take in some of the monastic attractions surrounding Lumbini... namely 'Tilaurakot' at Kapilvastu, 'Kudan', 'Ramgram Stupa' and a couple of other significant archeological sites.

Some of them, completely new to me. I was so happy.

It was all very interesting and I felt a real sense of achievement after visiting some of the more obscure and less travelled sites circumventing the Lumbini Archeological zone.

The people of this area are incredibly resilient and extremely welcoming. They survive in some of the harshest environmental and economic conditions; imaginable. It's truly humbling. Take 'dana' and 'baksheesh' for those you meet, that help you on your way. It's very, very good karma.

'Ramgram' was a revelation. I cried... a lot... here.

This is a very sacred and very active site of veneration and pilgrimage. I felt such a relief when I arrived. It was like taking my first breath... a huge weight came off of my shoulders, instantly.

Remember to take candles, incense and water, fruit and flowers if possible (the locals use yellow and orange marigolds to sprinkle over the Stupa mound). Please remember to remove your shoes when circumambulating the stupa remains.

May you be happy.
May you be well.
May you be free from suffering.

Ramgram Stupa is the only unopened Stupa with Buddha relic. This is the one among 8 relic stupas constructed by eight princes right after 'Mahaparinirmana' of Buddha. Later in 3rd century B.C. Emperor Ashoka dug open rest of the stupas to redistribute the relic into eighty-four thousand stupas. It is said that Ramgram Stupa was protected by Nagas from being excavated. whatever be the region, this stupa remained intact. Ramgram was a village in Devdaha kingdom, the maternal home of Lord Buddha's mother. Several other ruins have been found in the excavation of the area.
Lake many other monuments from Buddha's time, Ramgram Stupa was also in pity state with just a raised dome visible in the field. The primary excavation have unearthed important evidences of existence and worshiping of Stupa from around the time of Buddha.
In the present days, land around the stupa has been bought by the 'Lumbini Development Trust' and the remaining of the stupa is well preserved. The small park has platform to meditate or make offering. One can easily circumnavigate the stupa remains, thanks to the trust for buying space.
The stupa is about 35 km east of Lumbini and about 9 km from the east-west highway. It would be easy to visit the Stupa on the way to Lumbini from Kathmandu or while driving back.
