I am learning all about the different religions in school and I know a polytheistic religion believes in more then one god. Now to my understanding, Buddhism doesn’t believe in any gods or godly figures. So why is this religion called polytheistic? Please answer this question if you have any idea, or let me know of a website that has the answer. Thank you!

Buddha is not even suposed to be looked up as a god, but as a spiritual teacher.
But in another case, Buddhism has several buddhas, Siddartha, The Great Chinese Buddha ect.
Buddhist meaning “enlightened one”
I can see where people are getting there info wrong. Again, they are not gods.
