Kapilavastu is one of the poorest and most underserved regions in the Nepali Terai, despite its historical significance. This is the place were Prince Siddhartha, the future Buddha, was raised and lived until the age of 29. The foundational ruins of hie father's palace remains a sacred place for locals and an important pilgrimage stop for Buddhists from all nations.
Close to 140 historical sites related to the Buddha have been identified within this region. There is also evidence, in this region, of ancient sites of potentially profound historical significance, as yet untouched by archaeologists.
