Current Event- Oldest Buddhist Shrine Found

Post  CicelyS on Wed Nov 27, 2013 9:21 am

Recently, Archaelogists have uncovered a the oldest Buddhist shrine. This was said to be his birth place. Buddhism has been around for thousands of years, yet no one had any idea, until recently, when Buddha was born. With this discovery, we may be able to find the birth year of Buddha. The shrine is also said to be where Buddha was actually born. A tree is located in the centre, which matches stories about the birth of Buddah, where his bother held onto a tree branch whilst giving birth. It would be truly facinating should this discovery prove to be true.
