Destinations of Buddhist Pilgrimage

The four famous places of Buddhist pilgrimage are Lumbini, Bodh Gaya, Sarnath and Kushinagar, which are associated with the life and teachings of Lord Buddha. Lumbini, in what is now Nepal, is the birthplace of Gautama Buddha. The others are in India. Bodh Gaya was the place, under the pipal or Bo tree, where the Buddha was enlightened after practicing meditation for several years. Sarnath was the site of his first teaching and Kushinagar was the place of his death or final Nirvana.

Among the holiest of pilgrim places in the Indian Buddhist circuit is the Mahabodhi Temple at Bodh Gaya. India was rich with the culture of Buddhist life that spread to other parts of the world.
