Sreeni Kapilavastu.MPG [01:54]
Kapilavastu is the name of a region of ancient Shakya kingdom that is considered a holy pilgrimage place for Buddhists. The capital city of the Sakya clan, and one of the earliest republics, where Lord Buddha spent the first 29 years of his life. Here he saw sorrow and pain, disease and death. Then, finally when he saw a radiant happy Sadhu who had conquered all these, he decided to renounce all worldly riches and pleasures to seek truth and embark on the path of salvation. The place holds significant value for Buddhist pilgrims and has several Stupas. The archaeological excavations have revealed stone caskets containing relics believed to be that of Buddha's. These are the ruins of King Suddhodhana's palace.......locals say their are 25 rooms in this section of the palace..........
