Stupa of Heaped Lotuses
The main body of the stupa is characterized by the shape of a lotus and symbolizes the birth of Prince Siddhartha Gautama, who became Buddha Shakyamuni.
This stupa is designed commemorating the Buddhas birth in the royal Lumbini garden on the seventh day of the four lunar month in the year 563 BC. At birth Buddha took seven steps in each of the four directions - East, South, West, and North. Most noteworthy, each direction lotuses sprang, symbolizing the Four Immeasurables: love, compassion, joy, and equanimity. The four steps of the basis of this stupa are circular, and it is decorated with lotus-petal designs.
