Religion Around the World Cultural patterns and landscapes

Friday, December 6th(Day 1):The first place I visited was Atlanta, Georgia. Here i found the Hindu Temples of Atlanta, these are very beautiful attractions built back in 1990. The brilliant architecture closely reflects a human body which I learned is called a Sthapathi. Next, I went to India and went to the sacred Hindu town of Ayodhya, also known as Oudh or Awadh. It lies on the Ghaghara river.

Saturday, December 7(Day 2):The next place I visited was Jerusalem, here I visited the Church of Holy Sepulcher, better known as the burial grounds of Jesus. Christianity is obviously the religion i found here. The church is over 1,000 years old. Next, I visited the famous city of Bethlehem. This is believed to be the birth place of Jesus, and the city that the angel told the shepherds to travel to.

Sunday, December 8(Day 3):Next i found the religion of islam in The Grand Mosque of Mecca. The grand Mosque is the most famous Mosque in the world, which is understandable because of the unique yet beautiful architecture. Afterwards, I visited the tomb of Ali Ibn Abi Talib in the city of Najaf. Najaf is now the center of pilgrimage. Islam is the religion of Muslims, a monotheistic faith revealed through Muhammad as the prophet as Allah.

Monday, December 9(day 4): Today i went to the most famous and architecturally astounding Buddhist Pagoda. Shwedagon is a 2,500 year old Pagoda, covered with hundreds of gold plates and encrusted with 4,531 diamonds. Next, i went to the Borobudur temple. It is located on the Indonesian island of Java and was abandoned in the 14th century for unknown reasons. Java is now home to 56.7 percent of the Indonesian population and is the most populous island on earth. The Borobudur temple is one of the greatest Buddhist monuments in the world, and was built in the 8th and 9th century.

Tuesday, December 10(Day 500): Today, I visited what some people call "The mos beautiful synagogue in the world" The Maklouf Atia includes a beautiful prayer sanctuary and breathtaking stained glass windows. This synagogue is for Judaism and has soulf in every stone. After this, i visited the Western Wall. It forms the West flank of the temple mount and considered one of the most religious sites of Judaism, it is a limestone wall in the Old city of Jerusalem. Because of the status quo policy , the wall is the holiest place where Jews are permitted to pray.
