faith & worship callie crane 1b

I have recently travelled to Egypt. It was perfect there. While I was there, I visited Mount Sinai, which is the mountain where the Lord spoke with Moses before giving him the ten commandments. When he got down from the top of the mountain, his face was glowing from being in the presence of the Lord. It was a beautiful mountain ad I'm so glad I got to go because it reminded me of this story in Exodus.
After Egypt, I went to the United Kingdom. This is a Jewish Synagogue in Hove, a beautiful small town at the very bottom of the UK. These are important to Jews because they symbolize the place where they worship their god. Synagogue is the Greek word for place of assembly which is exactly what the Jews do in places like this. I really enjoyed being in Hove and I'm going to miss it.
Then I went to India. This is the Ganges river in Varanasi, one of the most important cities in Hinduism. It is so important because people take the corpses of their loved ones to Varanasi to be cremated then they spread their ashes in the Ganges. This is based on the belief that the Ganges river is holy and will benefit the departed soul. It also is based on the belief that it will make them better in their next life, or the afterlife.
This beautiful building is located in Nepal. It is the birthplace of Siddhartha Gautama, or the Lord Buddha, who is the founder of buddhism. he was born here in 567 BC as Prince Siddhartha, and after being "enlightened" he taught of his enlightenment in Nepal and its surrounding areas. The temple that is there now used to be a beautiful garden but after buddhism became a major religion, they built a temple on top of it, so that it could be one of the locations of the pilgrimage that happens once in a lifetime for buddhists.
This is The Masjid al Haram (the sacred mosque). It is found in Mecca, built around Kaaba. This is important because it is what the muslims turn towards everyday when they pray. It is considered by them as the holiest place on earth. I went at the perfect time because the Hajj period is just about to start, and there weren't a lot of people there. During Hajj period, it can't hold the number of people that come from all over the world to worship.
