Pilgrimage Tours Informations

A pilgrimage is a term mainly used in religion of a long journey to a sacred place or shrine of importance to a person's beliefs and faith. Members of every religion participate in pilgrimages. Tour-Travel-Portal.info provides tourists as well as pilgrims throughout the world with comprehensive travel and tourism details of some of the famous and the most visited pilgrimage destinations.

The Karnak Temple is the leading attraction for tourists across the world. A vast open-area museum and the largest ancient religious site in the world, the Karnak Temple has four parts, of which only one is accessible to tourists and the general public, and is the second most visited site in Egypt after the pyramid of Giza.

Lumbini, the birth place of Buddha, is a famous pilgrimage site for Buddhists. Located near the Indian border and the town on Kapilavastu, great stone pillars, attributed to Emperor Ashoka, were also excavated from this famous site.

Sarnath, formerly know as Mrigadava, Rishipattana, or Isipatana, is a deer park where Gautam Buddha formed the Buddhist Sangha. Located 13 kilometers from Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh, India, Sarnath has been a major source of attraction by tourists, both Buddhists and other religions since decades. Most of the ancient buildings and structures at Sarnath were either damaged or destroyed by foreign invaders, and only the Dhamekh Stupa, Dharmarajika Stupa, and the Mulagandhakuti vihara still remain. The Ashoka Pillar is a unique structure that is still one of the widely visited sites in Sarnath.

For Christians one of the most visited sites is Jerusalem, an ancient Middle Eastern city. The city, formerly the capital of the Jewish kingdoms of Israel, is the place where Jesus was crucified and from where he resurrected.

Bethlehem, a Palestinian city in the West Bank, has great significance to Christianity as it is believed to be the birthplace of Jesus. The Church of the Nativity, built by Constantine the Great, lies in Bethlehem, and is believed to be the place where Jesus was born and is the oldest existing church in the world.

Hinduism is an ancient religion that originated in the Indian subcontinent. Often know as the Sanatan Dharma or the Vaidika Dharma, the religion of the Vedas, Hinduism is the most ancient religion in the world and the only religion not founded by man. There are three sects in Hinduism—Saivism, Vaishnavism, and Saktism.

Kedarnath, a holy town located in the Himalayas in the Uttaranchal state of India, is a famous pilgrimage site for the followers of Saivism. This is the place where a form of the Lord Shiva is venerated as one of the twelve jyotirling.

Vrindavan, located in the Mathura district of Uttar Pradesh, is the town where Lord Krishna spent his childhood, and the most important Vaishnava place of pilgrimage. Vrindavan is also the theological center for many forms of Vaishnava theology, including the Gaudiya Vaishnava Theology.

Mayapur, the birthplace of Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, and headquarters of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKON), is a small town in West Bengal. It is one of the most holy places in India, visited by over a million pilgrims annually.
