Sacred Places

If you are looking to saturate your senses with a visit to some of the distinguished and renowned sacred places of the world, then you should move ahead to the Indian pilgrimage places that fill you with mind blowing spiritually uplifting feelings. Pertaining to the holy places of India, it is especially important to point out that sacred places associated with religions such as Christianity, Sikhism, Buddhism, Hinduism and various others are found here in abundance. With an exception to the Indian subcontinent, in no other country in this world, sacred destinations of diverse religions are found to assemble together in such a remarkable quantity as in India.

Hinduism is regarded as the oldest existing religion in the country and there are several Hindu sacred places in this nation that highlight the various aspects and dimensions of this religion. In Uttaranchal, the Hindu holy places are prominently Gomukh, Rishikesh, Hardiwar and Gangotri. The Char Dham Yatra is a very popular pilgrimage tour of India which takes you to 4 popular sacred destinations of Garhwal namely Badrinath, Kedarnath, Gangotri and Yamnotri. Undertaking this tour at least once in a lifetime is a wish of every Indian. In Orissa the popular pilgrimage places to visit are, namely, Bhubaneswar and Jagannathatha Puri. After paying brief visits to these sacred destinations, you can move ahead to other spiritually enriching places such as Tirupati, a place located in Andhra Pradesh or Varanasi, a site in Uttar Pradesh famous for its spiritual significance, where you would gain a sacred feeling not obtainable from any other source, journey or adventure.

All the aforementioned Hindu spiritual sites have their own special significance and alongside these places, sites of deep spiritual resonance pertaining to religions such as Buddhism, Sikhism and Islam have existed in this country since a long time back. Some of the renowned Buddhist sacred places in India are; particularly,

  • Ladakh, an area located in Jammu and Kashmir, is a sacred place chiefly famous as the place of Tibetan Buddhism
  • Bodh Gaya is located In the Gaya district of Bihar, and is especially popular as the place where lord Gautam Buddha, the founder of Buddhism, had achieved enlightenment.
  • Other Buddhist sacred places are mainly Lumbini, Saranath, Nalanda, Vaishali, Kapilavastu and Dharmashala.

The sacred tours of Indian sacred places that you have undertaken would remain incomplete if by chance, you forget to include the India-based pilgrimage places notable for their Islamic, Sikh and Christian resonance. The inclusion of sacred sites such as Jama Masjid in Delhi, Fatehpur Sikri, Ajmer Sharif and Qutub Minar in your itinerary would raise the importance of your tour immensely and even months after that sacred expedition, the memory of the grand journey would remain inseparable from you.

After ending your Islamic pilgrimage in India, you can move towards Anandpur Sahib and kickstart your visit to Sikh holy places. Anandpur Sahib is a town located at a distance of around 82 kilometres from Chandigarh and is widely popular as a sacred place associated with Sikhism. Amritsar is another place of deep spiritual significance where the Golden Temple is located. Apart from the sacred places mentioned here you will come across many other sacred places in India once you embark on your sacred tour of this country.
