Bhiksha Patra of Lord Buddha Found in Kabul Museum is Fake

A stone bowl believed to be a begging bowl of Buddha is presently displayed in the National Museum in Kabul, Afghanistan but a team of two experts from India who visited Kabul in May, 2014 for the verification of the bowl failed to find any resembance, leave alone other evidence to date it to the period,

"The available evidence does not indicate that the bowl displayed in the National Museum, Kabul, Afghanistan is a begging bowl (Bhiksha Patra) of Lord Buddha. Information in this regard has already been sent to Ministry of External Affairs," said Minister of State for Culture and Tourism (Independent Charge) and Minister of State for Civil Aviation Dr. Mahesh Sharma in a written reply in Rajya Sabha on Wednesday.
