Dr. Anil Kumar Singh (IAS) District Magistrate, Kushinagar, U.P.
The final meal for Lord Buddha was served by Chunda in Pawa or Fazilnagar which is now part of Kushinagar. Lord Buddha delivered his last sermon at Kushinagar. He had the last drink of water in Kushinagar just before his death. He attained Mahaparinirvana in Kushinagar. His body was cremated in Kushinagar and his relics were distributed in Kushinagar. No other place on earth is blessed with so many events related to any God. This makes Kushinagar one of the most important pilgrimage destinations for Buddhists and Mahaparinirvana Temple one of the most important Buddhist temples of the world.
With great effort, District Administration have managed to prepare a multi-media kit on Kushinagar comprising a coffee-table book, a brochure and a short documentary video. In addition to these, administration have created a dynamic website on Kushinagar. We believe this kit provides comprehensive information and visuals on Kushinagar.
