        For Sikhism, the Golden Temple of Amritsar.
        For Buddhism, there are many, but Lumbini, Nepal was where Guatama Buddha was born and is one of the Eight Great Places.

        Sikhism- Harminder sahib,Amritsar,Punjab,India. Built by Guru Arjan dev ji and Designed by Guru Ram das ji. There is also Nanak sahib,Lahore,Punjab,Pakistan. It is where Sikhism is born and also the life of Guru nanak :).

        Buddha spoke of four destinations for pilgrimage: they are:
        Lumbini: birth place of Siddhattha (in Nepal)
        Bodh Gaya: the place of his Enlightenment (in the current Mahabodhi Temple).
        Isipatana (now Sarnath) where he delivered his first teaching, the Dhammacakkappavattana Sutta (The Scripture of Setting in Motion the Wheel of Truth)
        Kusinara: (now Kusinagar, India) where the Buddha passed into parinibbaana (nibbaana [nirvana] after death).
        Additionally, Chinese Mahayana Buddhists have four mountains [四大名山]: sidamingshan] which represent bodhisattvas (Buddhist saints) which are popular sites of pilgrimage, as they each have many monasteries and shrines, and are the sites of reported miracles. They are:
        Wutai Mountain 五台山 [Great Wisdom Bodhisattva, Manjusri]
        Putuo Mountain 普陀普山 [Great Compassion Bodhisattva, Avalokitesvara]
        Emei Mountain 峨眉山 [Universal Worthy Bodhisattva, Samantabhadra]
        Jiuhua Mountain 九華山 [Earth Store Bodhisattva, Ksitigarbha]
        For Japanese Buddhists, the Shikoku Pilgrimage (四国遍路) which involves visiting 88 temples on the island of Shikoku, beginning and ending at Mt. Koya is very popular.
        Buddhists in other countries have their own particular sites of pilgrimage, such as Ananda’s Peak in Sri Lanka, or the Balanced Rock Covered in Gold Leaf, at Kyaiktiyo, Myanmar.
