Gautama probably wasn’t a real person anyways.
Where he is said to be from is in modern day Nepal, which was founded around 1768 CE. When Buddha was supposedly alive, it was in the nebulous region called India.

SAHIL

Nepal, India, Pakistan, sri lanka, Bhutan, all were part of INDIA
when the budh was born he was in undivided India, so the birthplace of budh is India.
gautam, budh all these words are of Sanskrit language and Sanskrit language is the best and first advance language of world. it was also originated in India. so the people thinks that gautam borned bin India.

BUDDHISM HAS ITS ORIGIN IN HINDUISM, THE BAD BUDDHA SAW IN HINDUISM WAS CHANGED.
STUFF LIKE REBIRTH, DHARMA, KARMA ETC ARE FROM HINDUISM.
AND HINDUISM IS A PART OF INDIAN CULTURE!

You are correct. Siddhartha Gautama was born in the garden of Lumbini, which is located in modern day Nepal. However, during that time King Suddhodhana (the prince’s father) ruled over the Sakya kingdom which included parts of both northern India and southern Nepal. Thus Siddhartha was born into Indian royalty. Besides the Buddha’s birth, all other major events of the buddha’s life took place in India. Maybe this is why some people believe India was his birthplace.
