No, Cookies are created by Server , but stored on clients PC, so that next request from same PC can be authenticated and help to preserve state between subsequent requests.

So your question would be like, "Where are cookies get stored on Clients PC ?"

They're located in the client machine. The exact location depends on the webbrowser used. Refer its settings and documentation.
