Traveling the World Story of my life

February 5 2016

For my first stop I landed in India, I went to the Sri Ranganathaswamy Temple! This was the most massive building I had ever seen, and it is the largest religious complex in the world! And dates back to the 10th century. This Hindu temple was colorful and very detailed, it had little tiny statues all over the building. This is so significant to India because it is the largest religious structure in India.

My second stop was 1,853 miles away in China, I visited the Mogao Grottoes. It was an amazing piece of scenery, it has 735 caves, 45,000 square meters of frescos, and 2,415 colored statues that fill Mogao Grottoes. This is very colorful and pleasant to the eye! This is very important to China because of the spiritual background and this is the biggest Grottoes in China!

For my third stop i went to Saudi arabia to experience Islam practices. The Ka'ba, this is a shrine built by Abraham, according to Muslim traditions around a black stone. The prophet the Muhammed specifically designated Meca as the holy sites of Islam and the direction in which the Muslims should offer their prayers. This is very significant to Saudi Arabia because it is the largest sacred site for Islams.

The fourth place that i visited was Jerusalem I went to the Mount of Olives. This was very important to Jews because this is where in the Bible, king David was weeping, left the city and went to the Mount of Olives to escape from his son Absolom who was conspiring him against him. This is a very plain, and doesn't have much color, and is very dull.

The last place that i visited was Israel I went to the Sea of Galilee. This is very significant to Christians because Jesus spent over three years by the sea, and had a lot of memories in the bible. This is a very pretty sea and has a very pretty scenery.
