Though the Buddha made it abundantly clear there are no “sacred” rivers, languages, sites etc., followers of his teachings are inevitably drawn toward important Buddhist centers. The four key Buddhist pilgrimage sites include: 1) Lumbini, Nepal where the Buddha was born; 2) Bodh Gaya, India where the Buddha experienced his enlightenment under a Bodhi tree; 3) Sarnath, India where in Deer Park, the Buddha offered his first teaching and where the Sangha was established; 4) Kushingara, India where the Buddha delivered his last teaching and where he died.
