5 Religions in 5 Days A look at the worlds five main languages

Dec. 20-2020, I start my trip by traveling to India and arrive in the morning where the first stop is the Buddhist Pagoda, in Sarnath, India. It is a fascinating structure and built near the third century. Being probably the oldest surviving Buddhist structure makes it significant to not only that culture, but everyone who appreciates beautiful structures.

Dec. 21-2020, After a good nights rest and a couple hours of travel, i reach the village of Khajuraho also in India. This temple is big and 1000 plus years old which makes it significant. It also is famous for the numerous sculptures on and around the temple. Some of these temples are dedicated to Hindu deities also adding to their significance.

Dec-22-2020, My next stop is to fly to Jerusalem. This next place is the holiest location for the Christian, Catholic & Orthodoxy community. The Church of the Holy Sepulchre, is the site of Jesus' crucifixion, burial, and resurrection,(all in that order),. This church is big and is beautiful from the main entrance to were Jesus' tomb is laid, and the shrine of sorts is amazing with hundreds of candles and offerings, its hard to pass by this amazing display without stopping to take it all in.

Dec-23-2020, After getting a days rest, I head over to the Western Wall or the Wailing Wall. The significance of this wall is that it's the remaining section of Jerusalem's second temple which was destroyed in 70 CE. The wall is close to fifty feet high and if you can be there to witness he hush that falls over the plaza as Jewish people gather around the base to pray, you can consider yourself because it truly is a spectacular site to behold.

Dec-24-2020, My final chapter in my tour of the religions is to visit the Ka'ba in Mecca, Saudi Arabia. According to Muslim tradition, Abraham built the Ka'ba shrine around a black stone. Also adding to the significance is that the profit Muhammad designated Mecca as the holy city of Islam and followers should direct their prayers towards the city. The Ka' ba s a unique structure. Situated inside a gorgeous open air temple of sorts, the Ka'ba is like a giant rectangle decorated by the foremost designers both in our time with the help of designers from the past.
