It looks like Lumbini will soon be a Chinese-owned "religious theme park"...:

On Wednesday, Nov. 7, 2012, Pushpa Kamal Dahal aka Prachanda, former military commander of rebel Maoist forces in Nepal, now chairman of the Unified Communist Party and chairman of the Lumbini Development National Directive Committee of Nepal (LDNDC), inked a deal with the China-backed Asia Pacific Exchange Cooperation Foundation (APECF) that will bring in a reported $3 billion to develop Buddha’s birthplace at Lumbini.


Strange world we live in where the communists are more 'capitalist' than many capitalists. Mao must be spinning in his grave.

Also strange that Prachanda, who started totally useless civil-war killing about 15000 people, is associated with development of Lumbini.
I agree with this article I found online.
