As i know, Sprint Goal is set during Sprint Planing meeting.

My question is? Is there any artifact to store that Sprint Goal? Can we place it into Sprint Backlog?

We write it on a flip chart, together with the burnup chart, so it is visible for everyone.
You can do it as your team thinks is feasible.

An artifact such as a Sprint Backlog is there to support the attainment of a Sprint Goal...not the other way around. So the Sprint Goal isn't something you'd actually place in the Sprint Backlog.

It would be better to make sure that the Goal is radiated to stakeholders. Some teams write the Sprint Goal above their Scrum Boards. This provides a level of visibility and helps ensure team members don't lose sight of it.

I am fully clear about this. Thanks all for your kindly answers.
