On the way to Lumbini from Bhairahawa, there lies Bethari bazaar. 5 kms north – east of this bazaar, is Laxmipur village. Around 50 meters north-south and 45 meters east – west of the locality, there is a huge ancient dishko. People believe that the water of kuwas present here has divine powers. “If the water is consumed, it protects from disease”, the locals say. 35 cms long and 15 cms wide bricks are used to build the walls of kuwa. Multiple holes seen in the middle portion of the dishka signifies the attempts to dig out the buried treasures. The ancient story reveals that at one time, the devi caught a person while he was digging the treasure. Later the villagers punished him. The rain water gets collected in the holes due to which the tendency of the degradation of the buried wealth is rather high.
Another dishko is present in the east of this dishka. On the upper region of the second dishko, there lies a thaan of local goddess Karanimai. In the nearby of the thaan, various earthen images of animals like elephants, horses, dogs as well as a soil made dhum is constructed which symbolizes the goddess. In 1995, during the construction of Bhairahawa – Lumbini Irrigation Project, a earthern pot filled with copper coins were found on the south of the village. On the coins, inscriptions reading Hijari Sambat 710, Sultan Jaam Allaudin and Mohammed Allaudin were discovered. On the west of the dishko, there is a ringed well of 108 cms diameter, which is now filled with stones, soil, dried plants and multiple pieces of pots. Bits of grey wire, N. B. P wire and red wire are found randomly tossed about around the well.
