Where did Gautama Buddha live?

in southern India
in northwestern India
in northeastern India
in Ceylon
The evidence of the early texts suggests that Sid­dhartha Gautama was born on the pe­riph­ery, both ge­o­graph­i­cal­ly and cul­tur­al­ly, of the north­east­ern Indian sub­con­ti­nen­t. It was either a small re­pub­lic, in which case his father was an elected chief­tain, or an oli­garchy, in which case his father was an oli­garch. Ac­cord­ing to the Ther­ava­da Trip­i­ta­ka scrip­tures, Gautama was born in Lumbini in mod­ern-­day Nepal.
