The concept of Stupa is indeed Buddhist in origin. Stupas are primarily associated with Buddhism and originated as sacred structures to enshrine relics of the Buddha or other revered figures.

Stupas were generally used as repositories of relics. Relics of the Buddha or esteemed Buddhist monks were often enshrined within stupas, making them important pilgrimage sites for Buddhists.

Stupas served as votive and commemorative structures in the Buddhist tradition. They were constructed as offerings or acts of devotion, and they also commemorated significant events in the life of the Buddha or other important figures in Buddhist history.
