Buddha Festival Kushinagar
This festival is held here annually at Kushinagar on the day of Buddha Purnima (in the month of April-May) in the memory of Lord Buddha, which lasts for several days and is attended by thousands of devotees. Pilgrims come to Kushinagar to celebrate the three most important stages of Buddha’s life- birth, enlightenment & death on this day. The festival starts with a procession starting from Burmese Buddhist Vihar in the early morning on this day. This is followed by many other different rituals that are performed throughout the day.
