Lumbini is in Nepal, not India. Reuters, please correct your mistake.



The Reuters website has an article titled China plans to help Nepal develop Buddha's birthplace at Lumbiniaccording to which the Asia Pacific Exchange and Cooperation Foundation plans to raise $3 billion at home and abroad to build temples, an airport, a highway, hotels, convention centres and a Buddhist university in the town of Lumbini, about 171 km (107 miles) southwest of Nepal’s capital Kathmandu. This is definitely good news for Nepal because the development of Lumbini will help boost government revenues, create jobs and improve infrastructure in Lumbini. But as I scrolled through the article I came upon an image of the Maya Devi Pond with the caption Bodhi tree and the Mayadevi pond in Lumbini, India. Lumbini is in Nepal, not India. Reuters, please correct your mistake.
