This pagoda was built by the Japanese at the cost of US $ 1 million, just outside the main area. The pagoda has the statue of Lord Buddha in the position he took when he was born. It is a gleaming white structure with a golden statue. It is one of the rising attractions of Lumbini. The Lumbini Shanti Stupa was constructed by Nipponzan Myohoji monks and dedicated in November 2001 at the Buddhist pilgrimage site in Kapilvastu district Lumbini zone Nepal, where Queen Maya Devi is said to have given birth to Siddhartha Gautama, who in turn, as the Buddha Gautama, gave birth to the Buddhist tradition.
