Google Maps Buddha’s Birthplace Error
If you search “birthplace of Buddha” you can see the map pointer is inside the area of Nepal but the location description is defined “Uttar Pradesh, India”. Well everyone is aware of the fact that Buddha was born in Kapilvastu, Lumbini in Nepal and even the pointer is pointed correctly in Lumbini area but how can the description be possibly written “Uttar Pradesh, India”? This has certainly drawn lots of attention, because it is delivering very wrong information to all the viewers of Google maps. Not to mention, this topic is very much emotionally related to all people who know the fact and of course Nepalese.
You may need to make minor effort for fixing this but, until its fixed, it will be major issue when it comes across people who are emotionally attached to it.
So, we would like to give you our very sincere suggestion to change the information accordingly. Also, we would like to encourage the team to find out other possible erroneous information.
You can make a complaint to the Google Maps Support Team.
