I traveled to CharDham Yatra. These valleys are sacred to Hinduism. I visited the beautiful valleys and went on a tour of the sacred site located in India. These valleys hold tales, and legends and sacred shrines. CharDham Yatra is one of the most popular pilgrimage routes. Lots of people visit here in hopes to eliminate sins and attain salvation by the blessing of the Lord. These valleys are referred as the "heavenly natural beauty." The CharDham consists of four abodes within the Himalayas. The CharDham also includes the four holy shrines of Hindus: Badrinath, Kedarnath, Gangotri, Yamunotri. In Hindu religion it is considered that every Hindu should visit these valleys at least once in their lifetime.

These valleys are in the Great Himalayas. These valleys are very sacred to Hindus considering two of the sacred sites located here are dedicated to Goddess Ganga and the Yamuna rivers.

I went to the Mahabodhi Temple in India. Located there is Bodh Gaya. Bodh Gaya is where Buddah unsurpassed Enlightenment. Its one of four holy sites affiliated with Buddah. It was absolutely beautiful, I do recommend for anyone traveling to or currently in India. This religious site is affiliated with Mahabodhi Temple Complex. The temple includes a diamond throne in the exact spot where Buddah was enlightened. Emperor Asoka built this temple. Part of the temple represents the Vedic Gods Indra and Surya. Parts of the temple have fallen and been restored. In 2002, UNESCO declared the Mahabodi Temple a World Heritage Site.

One of four sacred sites affiliated with Buddah. A stone railway was put around the perimeter of the temple, part of which is still standing.

Im now in Saudi Arabia visiting the Prophet's Mosque. Its on the site built by Muhammad himself. This is the second holiest Mosque. Its dome shaped. The current structure is almost 100 times larger than the original building. Legends say that there is an "empty grave" next to where the prophet, Abu Bakr, and Umar are buried. The majority of the mosque was destroyed in a fire that swept the town years after the prophet died. After the prophet died for 600 years there was no dome over his grave, but in 1279 the green dome you see today was built.

Second holiest Mosque, the first is al-Haram. When electricity Arabian Peninsula, the first place to be lit up was the Prophet Mosque.

I went to Israel and visited Mount Sinai, also known as "Mountain of Moses". The is sacred to Judaism. They believe this is the mountain where Moses spoke with God and received the Ten Commandments. I also visited The Western Wall which is located in Israel. This is the most sacred place in the world to the Jewish people. The Western Wall was part of the most magnificent building Jerusalem ever saw. It was one of four walls Herod the Great built to support the 1,555,000 square foot plaza on which the temple stood.

Where Moses received the Ten Commandments from God. The mountains are also important to Christianity and Islams.

MERRY CHRISTMAS! In light of Christmas, I visited Jerusalem. Christ was said to have been brought there on several occasions as a child, worshiped to the poor there in his adult years, he was crucified there, and lastly he was ressurected by God here. This is one of the most sacred places to Christians for all the reasons listed above. The mother of Constantine, Helen, built churches here to honor Jesus, and every Christian of every denomination visit Jerusalem.

Where Jesus was baptized. Jerusalem is important to Christians because almost evereything important that happened to Christ happened here.
