UNESCO to Conserve Monuments at Mayadevi Temple, Lumbini

Posted Mar 7th, 2011 under Tourism News,

The Marker Stone, Nativity Sculpture and the Ashoka Pillar are the three most emblematic monuments at the Maya Devi Temple (UNESCO World Heritage Site) in Lumbini. Conservation work on these three monuments to save them from further deterioration will begin this April at the initiative of UNESCO. A team made up of international and national experts led by Italian conservator Costantino Meucci will carry out conservation  work without moving the monuments from their original places.
