Kushinagar is an important Buddhist pilgrimage, which is the last place of abode of Lord Buddha. Lord Buddha got relieved from the shackles of death and life at this place. Buddha took his last breath close to the Hiranyavati River. As one visits this place, one much head towards the Mahaparinirvana Temple where one spots the reclining statue of Buddha. The city named as Thai Kusinara is also worth visiting.
