Pilgrimage in India

onlindarshan.com

The kind of cosmopolitan existence India has is best reflected in its pilgrim centres. Religion is the heartbeat of the nation and the followers of all the major religious and sects, viz., Hinduism, Islam, Buddhism, Jainism, Zororastrianism have lived here for centuries. Together has come up temples, mosques, gurudwaras, churches, synagogues and religious and spiritual centres. Hinduism, Jainism, Buddhism, Sikhism and countless minor cults and religious sects were born in India. Their religious and spiritual centres dot the country as much as those of the faiths of Islam and Christianity which came from outside. There is a very long list of temples, mosques and tombs, churches and gurudwaras spread all over the India. Infact, a vacation or holiday can hardly be conceived without a sojourn of pilgrim centres of India.

If the Char Dham Yatra, along with Ayodhya, Allahabad, Varanasi, Rishikesh and Haridwar in the North India and other pilgrim centres like Chidambaram, Jagannathpuri and Rameshwaram are important to the Hindus, the shrine of Moinuddin Chisti at Ajmer, Jama Masjid of Delhi and Agra, draw millions of devotees every year. The Golden Temple at Amritsar and Patna Sahib (in Bihar) Bangla Sahib and Sisganj Gurudwaras at Delhi are equally severed by the Sikh Community.

The Buddhist pilgrim centres like Rajgriha, Bodhgaya, Nalanda (all in Bihar) and Sarnath in UP are naturally of special interests to the followers of Buddhism. These Buddhist pilgrim centres constitute a very important element of travel and tourism in India. Further the Jain temples of Dilwara and Mt Abu draw thousands of followers, proving once more that a sojourn to pilgrim centres is one of the prominent reason. So much so, that even a small community like Bahai, have their own for travelling in India structure, viz. The Lotus Temple at Delhi, contributing its bit to the tourism in India.

Moreover, Hinduism being the largest religion, as well as the oldest one, their pilgrim centres in India outnumbers the others.

Even , the followers from outside the country travel to India to make a visit of places like Vaishno Devi, Amarnath, Kedarnath, Badrinath, Gangotri and Yamunotri, Brajbhoomi, Rameshwaram - all reflecting the faith and belief of the one of the largest religious/religious groups of the world.

Followers of Islam form the second largest religious group in India. Their mosques and shrines of Sufi saints like Moinuddin Chisti and Nizamuddin Aulia, dot the map of and give a boost to tourism in India. The European advent resulted in the erection of number of churches. And the pilgrim centres of Sikhs, relatively young in origin are connected with the life and work of their ten Gurus like Hemkund Sahib, Bangla Sahib (New Delhi), Sisganj (Old Delhi), Nankana Sahib (now in Pakistan) make India a very good religious holiday destination.

Moreover, there are festivals to celebrate everything under the sun, from honouring sacred cows, arrival of monsoon, new harvest to personal wedding celebrations. All in all, travel and tourism in India go together with pilgrim and other religious and spiritual centres. A visit to those places is more often than not, a great way to enjoy one's holiday/vacations. Travelmasti invites you to the great spiritual experience that India is, and request to join and regalement and enjoy.
