Buddhism is one of the oldest religions, dating back to around 4000 BC.
The idea that there are multiple gods, or gods who worship different people, is a staple of Buddhism, but the practice has its origins in the Sumerian civilization of Mesopotamia, and the first Buddhist temple in China was built in the 10th century AD.
