Do you know the four most important Buddhist pilgrimage sites? Here's s a great slideshare about each of the sites. And here's a summary from the Victoria and Albert Museum.
- Lumbini - the Buddha's birthplace
- Bodhgaya - where the Buddha sat in deep meditation beneath a pipal (bodhi) tree until he achieved enlightenment
- Sarnath - a deer park where the Buddha gave his first sermon and set the wheel of law into motion
- Kusinagara - where the Buddha passed away (parinirvana)
