Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday arrived in Lumbini, Nepal as part of his official visit, coinciding with the auspicious occasion of Buddha Jayanti.

Modi was received by Prime Minister Bahadur Deuba and his spouse Arzu Rana Deuba and several Ministers from the government of Nepal.

As Prime Minister, this is his fifth visit to Nepal and first to Lumbini. Modi also visited the Mayadevi Temple as the first stop of his one-day visit to Lumbini. 

The leaders paid their respects at the Marker Stone inside the temple premises, which pinpoints the exact birth spot of Lord Buddha. They attended the pooja conducted as per Buddhist rituals.

"I feel blessed to have prayed at the Maya Devi Temple on Buddha Purnima. May Lord Buddha bless us all and make our planet peaceful and prosperous," Modi tweeted.
