Siddartha explicitly told his followers not to start a religion based on his discoveries after he died. It took maybe ten minutes after he drew his last breath before the so-called faithful followers began to cut him up, hammer out his teeth, fight over dogma and in short, start a religion. Hominins build beautiful structures showcasing their faith, no doubt about that; but it would be better if we would just do unto others as we would have them do unto us.
