ASOKA AS A PILGRIM

Of the places that came into existence thus, four stand out supreme. They are: Lumbini Garden - the birth place of Buddha; Buddha Gaya - the place of his illumination; Saranath - the place of his first sermon and Kusinagar - the place where he breathed his last. As these places were intimately connected with the life and activities of the Sakya sage, they attracted people most. In consequence, they received special attention by Asoka in regard to beautification and maintenance. It became the life-long ambition of every devotee to perform a journey to them during his life time. Asoka too shared this and wished to go on a pilgrimage to these places. Forthwith, he sent for Upagupta for guidance, living then on the Mount Urumunda in the Nagabhatica forest, near Mathura.
